BEING FRANK | NOVEMBER 2022

Christopher Schuyler, Senior Staff Attorney, NYLPI Disability Justice Program, was interviewed by Frank Kunkle for his series, Being Frank

Chris spoke about being a person who stutters and shared his journey of finding community, as well as his role in the subway gap class-action lawsuit against the MTA. The lawsuit filed in October urges the MTA to address dangerous and inaccessible gaps between platforms and train cars.

“Whenever I open my mouth, somebody can see that I’m working to get the words out. That’s showing an effort that I think is uncommon. My hope is that it means something to the person I’m talking to. That vulnerability is my offering to the conversation.”
