Alice Mander

Alice joined the Imagine Better team in late 2019. Her lived experience with disability made her more aware of the huge disparities which exist in society, inspiring her to join the fight to make the change she wishes to see in the world. Originally from Auckland, Alice is now studying a conjoint degree in Law and Arts at Victoria University in Wellington. She is heavily involved in student politics and representative groups. In 2019 she was the Events Co-ordinator for the Victoria University Feminist Organisation and was also heavily involved with CanDo- the Disabled Students Association, who hosted the successful Disability Pride Week Panel. She is also a volunteer with the Community Justice Project at Victoria University’s Law School, where she gives her time to the Wellington Howard League. Alice’s passion for disability rights has usually been communicated through her journalism and writing. She has written for AttitudeTV, the Spinoff, and had a fortnightly column called Token Cripple in the Victoria University student magazine, Salient.
