Brad Lomax

As a member of the Black Panther Party and the disability rights movement, Brad Lomax played a critical role in solidifying cross-movement solidarity between both groups during the historical 504 Sit-ins. During the 28 day occupation of the San Francisco Office of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Lomax organized the procurement and delivery of food and medical supplies to the 150 activists taking part in this watershed political action. Lomax’s work as a bridge builder between racial and disability rights communities was central in coalition building between both movements.
