Colin Killick (he/him/his) is the Executive Director of Disability Policy Consortium (DPC), a statewide civil rights advocacy and research organization run by and for people with disabilities. He first joined DPC as a community organizer in 2014, and that year he co-founded the Housing Advocacy Leadership Team (HALT), a joint project of DPC and the Boston Center for Independent Living that develops leaders within the disability community to advocate for affordable housing. Since 2014, HALT has grown the state’s Alternative Housing Voucher Program for low-income people with disabilities from $3.45 million to $12.5 million today. He attended Harvard Kennedy School of Government, where he earned his Masters in Public Policy in 2018 and was awarded the school’s RFK Award for Public Service, before returning to DPC, becoming its Executive Director in 2019. He has motor dysgraphia, executive function disorder, and major depression, and credits the accommodations he received thanks to prior generations of disability rights advocates for being able to do this work.
