Independent Living Movement Lost Another Great Member – Debbie Jolly

Independent Living Movement Lost Another Great Member – Debbie Jolly

ENIL announces with great sorrow the loss of Debbie Jolly. Debbie died yesterday of cancer diagnosed two weeks ago. Debbie is our friend and fellow activist and her sudden death leaves us without words.

Debbie has been an ENIL board member for many years. With her strategy and engagement she was among those who started DPAC – Disabled People Against Cuts and has led DPAC to become a great and important organization and lobby body. As an Independent Living researcher Debbie has been a member of ANED – Academic Network of European Disability Experts.

Our thoughts are with her family and friends. Debbie R.I.P.
