#StaceyTaughtUs Syllabus: Work by Stacey Park Milbern

By Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and Alice Wong: For More Info, Go Here…

ngd- Stacy passed about a week ago, leaving us without her depth and kindness. This isa selection of her works, if you haven’t seen them before…

Stacey Park Milbern taught us so much. Here is a syllabus with a small sample of her work through interviews, blog posts, videos, and more. Although she has become an ancestor, the ways she taught us about disability justice, love, organizing and so much more are her living legacy on this planet. We can keep her present by sharing and practicing what we learned from her.

This hashtag was created by members of the Radical Monarchs, an activism organization for young girls of color. Stacey taught the disability justice curriculum at the Radical Monarchs for the past several years. The Monarchs are in the process of making a video project celebrating Stacey and lifting up what they learned about DJ from her. We thank the Radical Monarchs for their leadership and creativity.

A photo of Stacey, a mixed race Korean and white queer person, holding a paper sign that reads “Cherished.” The photo is stylistically torn at the edges with cursive text appearing across the bottom, “Stacey Milbern.”
