When Susan Sygall, a wheelchair rider, returns from national and international conferences that bring together hundreds of international educators, she often remarks that she was one of only a few attendees - if not the only one - with an apparent disability.
It is with great sadness but also with great respect and admiration that we honor the legacy of Marca Bristo. She was a fearless disability rights leader who united people around the world so that strategies, accomplishments, and challenges could be shared among the international disability movement.
We will miss Marca but hope that our efforts to make this a more just and equitable world will be a testament to Marca’s tireless efforts that paved the way.
For 29 years, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has prohibited discrimination based on disability. This summer, 22 disabled women leaders from 22 countries participating in Mobility International USA’s 2019 Women’s Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD) are exploring the many rights and opportunities which are now available because of the ADA and the activists who fought for it.
The National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (Clearinghouse) often seeks to engage exchange alumni who are Deaf or with disabilities to share their stories and experiences from their programs with a wider audience. The Clearinghouse also seeks to find leadership opportunities, such as speaking at conferences, webinars, and also share internship/job opportunities with alumni in the international exchange field.
Pioneering disability and international exchange organizations are partnering as members to the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange’s Roundtable Consortium to increase the participation of people with disabilities in the broad range of international exchange programs.

The NCDE is seeking college students and recent graduates in the United States who are interested in a career in international exchange! The goal of the fellowship is to provide college students and recent graduates professional and leadership skills related to disability inclusion in international exchange.
