DISABILITY IS A BADGE OF HONOR.
Creating Strength and Empowerment for People with Disabilities
Erin Noon Kay is the CEO & Founder of Claiming Disability LLC. Erin identifies a "fierce disabled entrepreneurial woman," with Cerebral Palsy. She uses a walker and wheelchair occasionally, but she believes it's "OK" to look disabled and is working hard to bring representation for disability in film and everyday culture through media projects and disability related content. She believes "disabled," is NOT is a bad word, but a badge
of honor, a beautiful community, a culture. She has worked in the non-profit, governmental, and business sector for over 10 years.
