Pushing Limits - Beyond the Devastation

Disability rights activists are regrouping after a criminal California budget that devastated IHSS, Medi-Cal, Cal-Works, cities, regional centers and the AIDS budget -- just to name a few programs.  John Kelly and Evan LeVane talk about what we can do to stop the slide toward death and nursing homes.

John Kelly is a Boston disability rights activist.  He works with Neighborhood Access Group (NAG) to fight for accessible sidewalks and his writing has appeared in the Boston Globe, Counter Punch, and Ragged Edge.

Evan LeVang is Executive Director of Independent Living Services of Northern California.  He is also the founder of the Disability Organizing Group for Initiating Total Equality, or “DOGFITE,” a
disability advocacy group for universal health care, tax justice, immigrant rights and no offensive military spending.

Hosted by  Adrienne Lauby and Eddie Ytuarte.
