Janie Mejias

Janie is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in disability studies at the University of Illinois, Chicago. She has been involved in the disability rights movement for many years and the steering committee provides me with a great outlet to share the important messages of the movement with others. The message that resonates most with me is that everyone should have the right to control their own lives and make their own decisions within a living environment of their choice. Janie looks forward to continued involvement with the steering committee and facilitating people's understanding of Access Living's goals and services.
