Disability Justice: Why It’s Everybody’s Business

January 26, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM



To better grasp what disability justice is, we’ll cover critical moments in disability history that everyone should know. We’ll examine how the past persists in current policies and attitudes today, but also note the wins in disability rights achieved thus far. We’ll also define ableism and provide examples of it. Lastly, we’ll share ways we can challenge outdated ableist assumptions still being made about people with disabilities.

Disability Justice Workshop Series

This webinar is part of the Disability Justice Workshop Series. View and share the flyer.

The Disability Justice Workshop Series introduces the concept of disability justice – a framework that examines disability and ableism as it relates to other forms of oppression and identity – and contextualizes it in U.S. history and current social justice work, with the goal of fostering a more just and inclusive Minnesota State community. These five interactive sessions are centered on the leadership and advice of people with disabilities, including Minnesota State students. Too often disability justice is erased in social justice talk and work. This workshop series addresses that silencing and attempts to destigmatize and reframe disability, celebrating the richness and variety found in human minds and bodies. The world would be a dull place if we all looked, acted, thought, spoke, and moved in the same way. As a community, we gain a lot by learning from people with disabilities of varied cultural backgrounds and lived experience. This series gives everybody time to learn, reflect, and plan for a future that is inclusive of all people.
