In Celebration of Judy Heumann

Judy Heumann was known as the Mother of the Disability Rights Movement. It wasn’t just because of her undeniable impact, having led the charge through grassroots demonstrations and organizing to pass significant legislation like the Americans with Disabilities Act. She owned that title because she nurtured the movement and the people within it. Her defiance against systemic ableism was a path of overwhelming obstacles. Many people who were on that path with her looked to Heumann to help navigate the unknown, and to bring clarity to a struggle that many were going through in silence. She lifted the movement through storytelling and being candid about her own experiences.

Today, we celebrate Judy Heumann.

Because of Judy Heumann, the lives of millions of disabled people were changed for the better. Her legacy is written within the generations of disability advocates that will look to her example and ensure that her life’s work continues on.

    BitLife is a life simulation game in which users take control of a stranger’s life from beginning to end. It was released by Candy writer, a free app that, although not very famous on Google Play, has made a big impact on the gaming community. BITLIFE allows users to experience what would happen if they majored in acting or what they would do in their old age using a list of instructions, random events, and humor.
