Allie Cannington

Senior Manager, Advocacy & Organizing
The Kelsey


From the Bay Area, Allie Cannington is a white, jewish, queer, disabled activist and organizer. Since gaining access to movements for disability rights and justice over ten years ago, Allie has organized people with disabilities on local, state, and national levels, always centering on people with disabilities who live at the margins, including LGBTQIA, Black, Indigenous, people of color, low/no income, and youth with disabilities. As Senior Manager, Allie leads The Kelsey’s policy and advocacy efforts to advance disability-forward housing solutions at state and federal levels. Across all policy change efforts, Allie works to ensure that the change we create is co-led by diverse and multiply marginalized disabled people. Within and outside of The Kelsey, Allie’s work is ultimately dedicated to unveiling everyone’s proximity to disability and to fueling justice movements that are intersectional, sustainable, and intergenerational.
