Structural Othering & Belonging (Fostering Belonging Individually and Structurally series)

This is the final video of the Fostering Belonging Individually and Structurally series. Judy Heumann, a prominent disability rights activist who was featured in the Netflix documentary “Crip Camp”, shares her lessons on belonging as a person living with disabilities and how society’s structures can both “other” and foster belonging, in this conversation with Rachel Perić, executive director of Welcoming America.

This training series is part of #BelongingBeginswithUs, a campaign dedicated to fostering a more welcoming nation where everyone–regardless of their background–can belong. The campaign was developed by the Ad Council and supported by a broad coalition of organizations all working to foster a spirit of belonging across the U.S. Learn more at
