Meet Jeiri Flores
Jeiri (pronounced Jay-dee) Flores is skilled at challenging ableist assumptions held by our society about people with disabilities through her expertise and through her lived experience. Jeiri chose to utilize Self-Direction so that she would have the freedom to choose the services she needs to live a life that works best for her. Look for Jeiri and her pal Carrie Baker in the next few weeks as they interview each other about their thoughts about Self-Direction. Jeiri can be followed on Twitter @jeiri_flores.
Diversity is great. Inclusion is where we are. But where we really need to get to is BELONGING.
