Disability Justice: Why It’s Everybody’s Business
January 26 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AMFree
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 Lastly, we’ll share ways we can challenge outdated ableist assumptions still being made about people with disabilities.
