Age 50, Phoenix, AZ. Michelle was a caring and loving daughter, had a mental health disability, and worked as a peer support specialist to help others with mental health disabilities. She was killed by police at her home.

Powerful black arm raised defiantly into the air, the hand curled into a fist, rising into the middle on the graphic. Designed into the arm, almost like a tattoo, is an infinity/unity symbol and the words “Black Disabled Lives Matter”.
