Yet after these 20 years, the 99% are worse off, jobless rates are soaring, over 650,000 Americans have died of Covid-19, and the planet is sizzling. If we want a habitable planet and true peace, we need to “connect the dots”. The US military

Michele Mashburn

Email: michele@sanjosepeace.org

Michele is the current Director of San José Peace and Justice Center. She has experienced both invisible and visible disabilities and now actively speaks out against ableism in our society. When disabled, advocacy becomes a second language to survive. At the grassroots level, she believes most barriers can be reduced through collective access. While she has degrees and advanced studies in the traditional educational structures, the degree from the School of Hard Knocks is the most valuable one to her today. She continues to “call people in” to discussions around the intersectional oppressions that exist today. Through COVID-19, the ableism in our society is a death sentence to many people in the “othered” communities. 

Other members of the Center refer to Michele lovingly as the “Black Hole of resources.”
