the project

Micah’s disability advocacy has a foundation in the creation of the “Beloved Community” and the notion that “A community that excludes even one of its members is not a community at all.” We need your help to create a website that serves the Beloved Community and that offers information related to:


1. Micah’s disability advocacy, justice and pride efforts. Items include:

  • Micah’s national speaking engagements
  • A keynote presentation entitled Through the Same Door: Inclusion Includes College

2. Connections to disability advocacy and justice resources. Including:

  • Micah is part of the ADA Generation and has been fully included in public schools, has won a federal lawsuit to live in a university dormitory and now works with the Inclusion Institutes and the Tasihoff Center at Syracuse University as a teaching assistant in Syracuse, New York. 
  • Micah collaborates and presents with Alex Cherup, a disability rights advocate and fellow member of the ADA Generation Micah met while attending Oakland University in Michigan. The two present as a team, about the power of community, friendship and intentional relationships.

3. Updates about recent exciting efforts for inclusion, disability pride and disability rights. Including:

  • The release of the documentary, Intelligent Lives, which will be available in the spring of 2018.

With this website, individuals will learn about Micah’s journey and ways to make their communities have high expectations and fully inclusive for people with disabilities. Your tax-deductible donations will go towards improving and sharing these resources for our community.

the steps

We will use the funds to produce, develop and update Micah’s website and online presence through collaborating with a professional website developer and with friends and family.
