Judith Heumann

This spring, Read to Succeed will continue to focus on the late Judith Heumann’s Being Heumann, a story of fighting to belong in a world that wasn’t built for all of us and of one woman’s activism. The story recounts Heumann’s lifelong battle to achieve respect, acceptance, and inclusion in society.
