In this Data Dialogue, we speak with Daphne Frias and Jarah Moesch!
Disabled youth climate activist Daphne Frias has a lot to say about gatekeeping in the environmental movement, from the lack of information in Spanish to disabled communities' inability to access data about themselves. In this episode of Data Dialogues, Daphne and Angela discuss (in English) the importance of personal stories in bringing solutions to our problems.
Dr. Jarah Moesch & Angela reflect on the ways members of the disabled community leverage online spaces to participate in environmental justice efforts, respond to climate events, and participate in all parts of the design process.
Together in their full dialogue with Angela, Daphne Frias & Jarah Moesch swap stories about disability-related air travel data (or lack thereof) and bemoan the way things break when you look for quick fixes, whether it comes to climate change, disability access, or data visualization.
