Writer, Lawyer, and Disability Activist[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

Aditi Juneja was born in Chandigarh, India on February 26th, 1990.[1]. In 1991, Aditi and her family moved to the United States when her mother took a job at Rockefeller University[1]. When Aditi was ten, she was diagnosed with epilepsy, which impacted her future advocacy in disability studies[1]. Aditi also focuses on writing and creating online spaces for other immigrants, people with disabilities, and allies to be informed on policy, processes, and involvement in U.S. politics [2][3].

Education[edit | edit source]

  • In 2012, Juneja received a bachelors degree in economics from Connecticut College.
  • In 2017, Juneja earned her law degree from New York University.

Career and Advocacy[edit | edit source]

Following Juneja's time at New York University, she began working to inform others on how to become involved in U.S. politics. She was heavily influenced by the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, and she collaborated with Stay Woke [4] to create the Resistance Manual [3] in order to inform the public on how to participate in U.S. politics and navigate policy and political processes. This let her put her legal education to work in order to make the U.S. political system more accessible to the public. Juneja also co-created Our States [2] in order to actively work to challenge controversial policies under Donald Trump's presidency.  Much of her work focuses on making politics inclusive and accessible to immigrants, people with disabilities, and allies. Juneja also previously worked on issues of housing as a New York State Excelsior Service Fellow [5]. Currently, Juneja works for Project Democracy as a communications organizer and she hosts a podcast called Self Care Sundays [1] [6].
