Last week, I was interviewed by Leah Harris for an article on survivor-led mutual aid projects during COVID-19. The article, “‘Not Fragile’: Survivor-Led Mutual Aid Projects Flourish in a Time of Crisis,” was published by Mad in America, a science, psychiatry, and social justice online newspaper and webzine.
“Cypher expressed mixed emotions regarding how the pandemic has made possible the kinds of accommodations and access that disabled people had long been asking for, and had often been denied. Speaking of new virtual mutual aid spaces online, Cypher told Mad in America, ‘It’s trendy right now because it’s necessary, and a lot of people in our community are very happy for the opportunities, but also upset that they weren’t accommodated earlier.'”
