Oral History interview (00h 54mm 40ss) with Carlos Sosa conducted remotely by Emily McPherson in Winnipeg Manitoba, 2021. Interview is indexed and fully transcribed.
Emily McPherson interviews Carlos Sosa about his experience as a participant in disability rights activism and advocacy.

Speaks about beginning to participate in activism, involvement in the New Democratic Party, and mentorship by the late Jack Layton. He details some of the activist projects that he has been a part of such as the efforts to save the Kelvin Community Centre, affordable university tuition, and efforts to ensure the operation of public services such a libraries and swimming pools. Sosa describes his current work at the CBC and his own experiences with disability and the stigma surrounding it. He discusses his initial perceptions of the MLPD, his involvement in the organization, as well as his choice to create an oral history project based on that organization. The interview concludes with Sosa connecting the human rights movement to oral history and commenting on the impact of the pandemic on the most vulnerable in society.
