"Funding the Future of Accessible Air Travel"
Michele’s journey into the disability rights movement began with her son Greyson, who was born with a neuro muscular illness. When her family needed to travel by plane, she experienced firsthand the struggles and difficulties of traveling with a wheelchair. She knew something needed to be done and created All Wheels Up, an advocacy and research organization that advocates for wheelchair accessible air travel and crash tests wheelchairs for commercial flight.
