Alec Frazier has been a public policy advocate for the disabled community since he was in elementary school. He has gotten two pieces of legislation passed, interned in Washington, D.C. and co- founded a prominent regional disability symposium. He also works for a number of agencies serving people with disabilities. He believes that the disability community should determine its own future and should have a key role in deciding its own public policy. Frazier has started to develop a new philosophy, Disability Realism, for people who wish to further the disability rights agenda while remaining in touch with today's culture and social practices.
A native of Ithaca, New York, Frazier has a Bachelor's of Arts in Political Science from the University at Buffalo. A current resident of Buffalo, NY, he is enrolled in the Master's of Arts Disability Studies program at the University at Buffalo.
