Rafi is a queer, trans, multiply-disabled, white, Jewish femme. They are passionate about making the arts accessible, and facilitating solidarity between all of the chronically ill, neurodivergent, and mobility- and sensory-disabled communities they are a part of. They are working to trouble the conventions of disabled dance, and continue their involvement as an illustrator for Sins Invalid.

A former Fulbright fellow, they are currently a participant in the Dancing Disability Lab at UCLA. Rafi is also a founding member of the Bay Area Disabled Dance Collective, and lectures on issues of disability justice and dance. You can find them on the Sins Invalid podcast, “Into the Crip Universe.” They believe in plants, sex worker justice, and the joy and intimacy of inter/intra-disability identification.
