This event will feature ASL interpretation and live captioning.
Learn & practice the principles of Disability Justice, exploring how they apply to you and your work. This social justice training will center the experiences of people with disabilities, but will also cover issues of race, class, and gender, particularly as they intersect with disability experience. We will discuss where the disability movement is right now and why, how each of us can help end ableism, and how to ensure the people in our sphere are getting the right messages about disability.
