I am a social designer working with under-represented groups through service, activism, and imagination.
I frequently question what is considered "normal" when I navigate both public and private spaces. Who are the preferred majorities that designed systems are serving?
All too often, people who resist or do not fit into certain categories are only seen as minorities or catalysts of diversity. I believe design should be an inclusive method for civic and community services when used with justice and equity-based approaches.
When thinking about Intersectional Feminist design methods, I aim to follow and implement the disability rights quote, nothing about us without us. I encourage you to consider it in your field of practice too.
