For Latinx Heritage Month, also known as Hispanic Heritage Month, Wit is having conversations with Latin American artist-activists about their art practices and how they use their skills to impact social change. First up in this series is Jade Ramos, blind visual artist and disability advocate. Ramos’s work explores using written language as a visual tool to convey and obscure a message, which draws attention to discrimination against disabled people and the steps that can be taken to make the world more accessible. The episode is 31 minutes long.

Many thanks to Jade for allowing us to use her art studio at Moore College to record this podcast episode. This episode can also be found on Apple Podcasts and Spotify! Podcast recorded by Wit López and edited by Morgan Nitz.
