Senior Manager, Advocacy & Organizing
The Kelsey

Allie Cannington is a white, jewish, queer, disabled activist and organizer. Since gaining access to movements for disability rights and justice over ten years ago, Allie has organized people with disabilities on local, state, and national levels, always centering on people with disabilities who live at the margins, including LGBTQIA, Black, Indigenous, people of color, low/no income, and youth with disabilities. As Senior Manager, Allie leads The Kelsey’s policy and advocacy initiatives to advance disability-forward housing on state and federal levels. Within and outside of The Kelsey, Allie’s work is ultimately dedicated to unveiling everyone’s proximity to disability and to fueling justice movements that are intersectional, sustainable, and intergenerational.
