About the Talk
Disability Justice is a radically intersectional framework necessary to sharpen our political analysis, clarify our demands, and shape our everyday activism and organizing practice. Disability Justice offers radical and revolutionary ways of reimagining our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the communities where we live, work, and learn.

Disabled people at the margins of the margins have always been at the forefront of movements for justice and freedom, building networks of care and solidarity, and creating social and cultural transformations that enable us to experience rest and practice active love as co-teachers and co-learners.

This will be a fully online presentation. CART and ASL will be provided. If you need other accommodations, please indicate on the registration form.
