Don’t Let the Pity Party Last Too Long – Jini Fairley

Jini with award from Carroll Center

Jini Fairley developed retinitis pigmentosa (rp) as an adult. As her vision progressively diminished, she made changes to her life as needed, always remaining fiercely independent. As Director of Services at MWCIL for x years, Jini mentored IL Coordinators and helped many, many consumers achieve new levels of independence. Today she is the staff person for Newton’s Commission on Disability, with a significantly improved commute! Jini continues to actively fight for disability rights.
