Experience Is Our Teacher: People with Disabilities on Allyship, Advocacy, and Pride

April 27, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM



This workshop aims to teach the audience about the richness and variety in the lived disability experiences and perspectives of people with disabilities (and of their families). We will share their advice on how to be better allies and how to advocate for yourself as well through self-advocacy tools. We will also show what disability pride can look like and sound like across different disability communities. This workshop will highlight the voices and perspectives of Minnesota State students 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.
