Paid: Home Care Worker Wanted


Here is why this is one of the best work places on Earth!

David W. Oaks has worked for more than 40 years as a disability activist, mainly on mental health. He has also worked in the peace and environmental movements. He co-founded MindFreedom International, one of the main independent human rights coalitions for mental health. He was director for 25 years of this Eugene-based nonprofit. He has spoken widely in more than 10 countries.

In December 2012 he had a major fall and has about nine severe disabilities, however, he is still an activist and writer. His main interest now is the intersection between our environmental crisis, disability, disaster preparation, and climate silence.
