People with disabilities make up 19% of the US population, and are impacted disproportionately by racism, sexism, classism and other forms of oppression. Disabled people live every day in systems not designed for vibrant bodyminds, and we know because of this disabled people have a lot to offer our collective understanding of what a revolutionary future looks like. Join us for this introduction to accessible organizing and being an accomplice to people with disabilities. We will talk about how ableism impacts our organizing cultures, give a skillshare on how to facilitate accessible spaces and marches, and dream together what cripping our movements would do.
Everyone welcome. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you need special accommodations (ADA accessibility, interpretation, etc.), please email firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1.
