After learning that a blind man was walking using a chair because neither civil society nor any state agency provided him with a cane, Blanca decided to help people with disabilities, a task she has been carrying out for 15 years through her own foundation, articulating needs and good intentions. The activist role that she has fulfilled since then to make migrants with disabilities visible may not benefit her, but she understands that her activism is part of a broader process -and, therefore, slow and frustrating- of acquiring of rights. She says: “It’s a fight, I think, that comes in the long term. But if we start doing something right now, maybe we’ll make it, right? But you have to get up, you have to have that courage, right? To make a difference and try to be recognized”.
