About

Savannah "Nico" Breakstone writes, does Disability rights, and organizes. They also sometimes do gaming live streams, art, and other stuff. Savannah regularly asks for input on projects on social media.

Savannah maintains a Disability Twitterchat Calendar to help the disability community schedule, find, and participate in twitterchats. It's their hope that the project will help bring the community closer together, as well as build solidarity between the larger disability community and marginalized PwD.

Savannah is dedicated to signal boosting the work of other disabled people, especially those with additional marginalizations on social media. This is one of the reasons they don't offer signal boosting as a reward- marginalized people rarely have money, so we all must work to boost their work if and when we can.

As Nico Streams, they stream retro horror video games and sometimes some other things. 

Savannah regularly goes to policy meetings and advisory meetings in the state of Pennsylvania as a disabled person, specifically as an Autistic disabled person. Most of these are unpaid meetings, though expenses are often reimbursed. 

Locally Savannah is involved in Oil Region Rising (local indivisible chapter), the county Democratic party's activities, and other community activities designed to educate and promote social change in Venango County, Pennsylvania and across the rest of Appalachian Pennsylvania.

Recently Savannah has gotten more involved in direct action. In order to do more of this having financial support to travel places when other trips don't coincide well would be helpful. 

The financial support this Patreon provides will allow Savannah to do all of the above things, as well as pursue future projects- and cover things like internet and food of course. 

Background about Savannah:

Savannah began formally advocating at the age of 12, when their mother asked them to sit on a panel for a state level conference presentation. Advocacy became a true passion for Savannah once they became an adult. Co-morbidly diagnosed GAD, PTSD, and Autistic, they worked in Mental Health advocacy before they connected with the ASD and DD communities. In adulthood, they was diagnosed with several life long as well as adult onset chronic health disabilities, some of which have a mild-to-moderate impact on mobility depending on the day.

Other advocacy as well as community involvements have included national and state level organizations and advisories, various county level advisories, and Freelance Advocacy efforts. Savannah is a board member and current vice president of the PA based SAU1 (Self Advocates United as 1), and writes at Cracked Mirror in Shalott, at a couple of off topic blogs, and as a contributing writer at several multi contributor blogs.

Outside of advocacy, Savannah’s perseverations include Anthropology, Cats, Social Histories, Star Trek, and the Histories of Oppressed populations. They lives in the mountains of rural northwestern PA with their cat, Catterina.

Savannah does freelance captioning, writing, and consulting. Please email for quote discussions.
