Ramp Your Voice! is the brainchild movement of Vilissa Thompson, LMSW, a macro-minded social worker who is on a mission to educate and inform the public & political figures about the plight of people with disabilities, especially women of color with disabilities, in America. I also strive to promote the importance of self-advocacy & strengthen empowerment efforts among people with disabilities.
I am a woman of color with a rare condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), better known as brittle bone disease. Though my bones may be fragile, my spirit and determination to share my story and improve the status of those like myself are unbreakable. I will use Ramp Your Voice! (RYV for short) as a way to spotlight the issues and barriers of people with disabilities, as well as create effective social and political changes to ensure that all people have the ability to succeed and prosper, regardless of their ability, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, educational level, or place of origin.
