with Reyma McCoy Hyten

Two Sides of the Spectrum Podcast Episode 70

In this episode, Reyma McCoy Hyten helps us explore the root causes of oppression for Autistic people, and sit with the discomfort of examining our role in it. Reyma McCoy Hyten is Autistic and was the first Black woman to ever serve as the US Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner for the Administration on Disabilities. After two decades as a helping professional, Reyma now focuses her work on the root cause of systemic oppression, and, as she puts it, “how systems create marginalization in the first place.”
