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

David W. Oaks has worked for more than 44 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 12 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. He has started a consulting business, Aciu! Institute, and you read more about this on the Aciu website.David’s home office is in a quarter-acre small eco-home called Mad Swan, with his wife Debra, and their cat Bongo.

David works closely with people in the Oregon Country Fair community as an Elder, the Unitarian Universalist Church in Eugene, video activist David Zupan, and Opal Network.
