Mike Sandell

AmeriCorps VISTA Member

Mike has been fortunate to work in many settings, from public schools, to homeless camps, to an elder care facility.  The one thread connecting these things is his passion for disability justice and fighting for accessibility in these spaces.  As a kid, Mike needed the kind of support The Shadow Project provides and didn’t get it, so he knows what it’s like to struggle in school.  Now, he wants to make sure students today have an easier time in school and are able to thrive as their authentic, unique selves.
