Judith Snow (October 29, 1949 – May 31, 2015) was a social inventor and an advocate for inclusion communities that welcome the participation of a wide diversity of people. She was also a visual artist and Founding Director of Laser Eagles, an organization making creative activity available through personal assistance to artists with diverse ability, lasereagles.net.
Judith consulted and did workshops on peace and inclusion, person centered planning, personal assistance, support circle building, family support and inclusive education. Her goal was to foster an understanding of how people with disabilities can be full participants in communities everywhere.
Judith did this work out of a background of being labelled disabled herself. Among other experiences she lived in a chronic care environment for four years. With the assistance of a strong support circle, the Joshua Committee, she was able to lobby the Ontario Government to pay directly for her attendant care. She is the first person in Canada to receive money for this support that goes with her and is not controlled by an agency or institution. This means Judith’s star can shine everywhere!
