Meet our Speaker:
Psarah Johnson, a self-identifying “cripplepunk,” is a community activist who was born with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and since then has spent her life collecting autoimmune disorders. In addition, she suffers from PTSD, the result of the medical trauma and psychological abuse she has endured throughout her four decades on earth. However, Psarah has lived her entire life refusing to take the back seat. She has worked as a group home coordinator, taught high school students theatre and civics, performed as a stand-up comedian, and--at one point--even ran away to join the circus. Most recently, Psarah has stepped away from her career as an educator to become a full-time activist, advocate, writer, and public speaker. Currently, she is the board chair for the Disabled Rights Action Committee.
