Student Activism for Disability Justice and Holistic Access | Marion Quirici | TEDxDuke

Marion Quirici discusses disability access as a civil rights issue, and shares how student activism can make change on college campuses. The talk demonstrates how “access” is about a lot more than ramps and elevators, and introduces methods for making learning environments and the culture of higher education more inclusive and democratic. Dr. Marion Quirici is Lecturing Fellow in the Thompson Writing Program, Faculty Advisor of Duke Disability Alliance, and Co-director of the Health Humanities Lab at Duke. She is active in the independent living movement, serving on the board of directors for the Alliance of Disability Advocates, and the labor movement as a proud member of Duke Faculty Union and the Durham Workers Assembly. She is committed to building opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaborations at Duke centering on disability justice, and collaborations with the community. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
