What is HEARD?
HEARD envisions a world where multiply-marginalized disabled people are inherently valued and have the resources, safety and love they need to thrive and live self-determined lives. We dream of a world that honors our interdependence, invests in our healing from harm and trauma, recognizes our potential for growth and transformation, and ensures our collective liberation. There are no police or prisons in the future because our communities have created the conditions, developed and provided the resources, and shared the necessary knowledge to make all forms of policing and incarceration obsolete.Support Our Work!
