Racial Justice and Disability Justice: Working Together to Free Our Minds and Bodies
February 23, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AMFree
We will discuss the compound impact of intersections between racism and ableism within US society and why this intersect is so rarely discussed in social justice. We’ll hear from key figures who work in racial and/or disability justice and think about how their ideas overlap or could overlap. Lastly, we’ll talk about what social justice might look if we listened to (rather than silenced or erased) our leaders with intersectional identities.
