Remembering Alice Conway, ME and MA Disability Rights Activist

Now up on the Ability Maine website, Mike Reynolds's tribute to Alice Conway. Reading Remembering Alice Conway made me wish I had known this powerhouse of a disability rights activist. Splitting her time between Maine and Massachusetts, Conway successfully battled for disability access on airplanes, in education, and against euthanasia. Alice was a good friend and an advocate who will be sorely missed.

If you have memories of Alice or words of condolence for those who loved her, please share them in the comments. Thank you.
