ECNV’s Agents of Change Choose Areas of Focus To Advance Disability Justice and Interdependence

Our Ford Foundation Fellows at ECNV, the Agents of Change (AoC) have hit the ground rolling this year. They have decided to focus on 3 key areas throughout most of this year, to help advance the rights, access, and opportunities for people with disabilities including: Housing, Employment, and Social Issues. 

In the first part of the planning phase currently, they are focusing on the barriers and other issues around buying and renting housing as a disabled person; and interviewed a number of professionals in the real estate and housing markets on March 24th about ways that this can be improved. They interviewed the following professionals about these issues:

Tim Moyle, a blind real estate agent serving the Sonora, California area Susan Moyle, a universal design specialist Melisa Casacuberta, who has been a licensed residential real estate agent for 10 years and is also a Certified Aging-in-Place-Specialist. Roy May, is an Iraqi Army veteran turned real estate agent who works and lives in the Texas area.

Next the Agents of Change will begin to focus on Employment issues later in the Spring, and Social Issues in the Fall.
