Building a Disability Politic & Access-Centered Cultures | Mar 27 & Apr 3 | 4-6pm ET

 Registration is closed for this event
Develop an expansive understanding of disability and ableism that’s rooted in historical context, and determine the differences between accessibility and access.


Workshop #1: Building a Disability Politic

This workshop will illuminate the ways that disability is connected to the existing systems and oppressions that movements are already addressing in the work. We’ll develop an expansive understanding of disability and ableism that’s rooted in historical context. The wisdom of disability-led struggles will be the foundation that informs how we increase disability solidarity.

Workshop #2: Building Access-Centered Cultures

This workshop will delineate the differences between accessibility and access with the goal of developing practices rooted in anti-ableist values that can shift culture. Information as to how a justice-oriented framework can benefit everyone will be given.  Participants will have opportunities to share, hone, and rethink their approach to access by working through scenarios.
