Back to Package

How can intersectional social justice concerns attend to disability access? How do we combat the objectification and pity of our disabled coworkers, clients and broader community? This session will center the principles of disability justice, a movement led by multiple marginalized disabled people. 

Inspired by disability justice activist Mia Mingus's work, we will explore accessibility, which is something that enables disabled people to inhabit public and virtual spaces, as an "act of love" rather than a fear of doing or saying the "wrong thing." Instead, we will consider how the disability justice movement challenges us to move beyond merely accommodating disabled people to centering their experiences, transforming our communities into accessible spaces for change.
