Brittany Déjean and her father Paul Martin are featured in an AT&T/Direct TV documentary, “Resolution: Innovative Thinking About Disability.”

Déjean is a disabilities advocate with her own website, Ablethrive.com.

She was inspired after her father was paralyzed in a 1998 car crash that also killed her younger brother.

Déjean (@AbleThrive) joins Here & Now's Robin Young to talk about her work empowering those with disabilities, and about her wedding dance with her quadriplegic father.
