Wife, mother, advocate and author are just a few of the titles that describe Meeka Caldwell. But becoming an advocate isn’t usually something that people set out to do. It’s driven by a deep passion and desire for change. As a new mother of a baby boy with Down syndrome, Meeka quickly noticed a deafening silence around the needs of Black and Brown people within the disability community. What started out as speaking up for her own child, has evolved into speaking out and becoming an advocate for the entire community. Join in the conversation as Meeka talks with our community about her latest book, “A Friend Like Anian: The First Day of School” and learn more about the importance of representation, inclusion and advocacy.
