Heumann Perspective

Judith (Judy) Heumann formerly served as the Special Advisor for International Disability Rights at the US Department of State from 2010-2017. She is now building an online presence under The Heumann Perspective through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. This new project is intended to broaden and spur discussions on the intersectionality of disability rights. On a recent trip to Washington, DC, Dr. Brent Elder made dinner plans with Judy Heumann, and she invited him to her home to film an episode of The Heumann Perspective. What follows is a short video of their conversation about inclusive education, representation in the media, and disability rights.
