Join us as we explore radical inclusion: beyond ensuring access and inclusivity and envisioning what disability justice can become across all communities. Disability justice focuses on a framework that values access, self-determination and an expectation of difference in disability, identity and culture.
We are excited to host leading disability and social justice advocate Talila A. Lewis, who will guide us in unpacking the layers of intersectional oppression that exist and learn actions that promote disability justice. This allows us to more fully address ableism and systemic barriers including access, medical discrimination, education and mental health that continue to restrict and hinder the disabled community.
