    Today’s 31 Days of SMA speaks for itself: Heather Kerstetter is the activist the disability community needs right now.

    Heather just graduated in May with her Masters of Social Work and is now working as a Program Specialist in Philadelphia. She emphasizes how social work is more than caseworkers and family services and how she has taken a more policy-based approach.

    For Heather, her job is centered on a disabled person’s rights in the workplace and how employers can navigate potential barriers when hiring a disabled employee. She goes into further detail with us here, but in a nutshell, Heather is doing AMAZING things.

    Have you ever experienced discrimination in the workplace because of SMA? What did you do?
