Disability and civil rights leader Mia Ives-Rublee to deliver Bobby Boyd lecture

In this year’s Bobby Boyd Leadership Lecture at noon on March 21, Mia Ives-Rublee MSW’09 will share how she uses multiple tools, including research, storytelling and lobbying, to uplift the needs and priorities of marginalized communities.

As a transracial adoptee born with a disability, Mia Ives-Rublee has leaned on lessons from her personal and professional experiences to challenge her own physical limitations and to advocate for the rights of people with disabilities, immigrants and other disadvantaged individuals. Mia is best known for founding the Women’s March Disability Caucus and organizing the original Women’s March on Washington in 2017. She is a member of President Biden’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders.

This event is offered in-person and via livestream. Registration for the lecture is free but required: go.unc.edu/RegisterForMia
