Disability Justice Talk with Mia Mingus
Oct. 20, 2013
Location: SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings St
Time: 10:00am to 2:00pm
A Disability Justice analysis deepens & strengthens our work for social justice because ableism undergirds whose bodies are considered desirable or disposable. This workshop will give participants a chance to engage with the Disability Justice framework and understand how it connects with different communities, movements and access.
Focused towards activists, organizers, community groups and non-profit organizations, core concepts to be explored include: What is Disability Justice? How is it different from Disability Rights? What is ableism? How can we start integrating a disability justice analysis into our work as activists and organizers? How are disability and ableism connected to other forms of oppression? Disability Justice has the power to shift our work so we can fight for liberation for all of us, not just some of us.
Everyone welcome, but advance registration is required. Communication Access Realtime Translation (live captioning) will be provided at this event. ASL translation will be available if requested before October 15th.
