I'm not at Creating Change, but if I were, I would sure be attending some of these sessions put on by Disability Justice Collective (DJC) members Sebastian Margaret, Mia Mingus, and Eli Clare. (Info below via Mia Mingus.)
If you go, tell us about these sessions -- or any others you attend and are changed by!
Thursday, 2/3, 9:30 am and 2 pm: The Familiar Made Strange: An Introduction to Disability Justice
Two repeating introductory sessions will focus on the ways ableism and disability impact our various queer trans/gender-non-conforming communities and activism. Both half-day intensives will focus on the fundamentals of disability justice, and the layered connections between disability, class, race, and queerness, and the necessity of embedding disability justice into our social-justice politics.
Saturday, 2/2: 4:45 pm: Disability and Racial Justice
Join the DJC for a pair of conversations - one for disabled people of color facilitated by Mia Mingus and the other for white disabled people facilitated by Sebastian Margaret and Eli Clare.
