Moving Beyond Pity and Inspiration: Disability as a Social Justice Issue

Workshop presented by Eli Clare, author of “Exile and Pride”!

Want to learn about disability and how marginalization and discrimination impact access to education, employment, housing, and social services? Want tools to create more access for people with disabilities in your community? Curious about the intersections of disability with other identity categories? Don’t know what we’re talking about? Then this is the event for you! You don’t want to miss this!

Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether you think about these things everyday or not at all. *With delicious dessert!*

(Brought to you by Wesleyan Students for Disability Rights, Sign Language House, FGSS, SALD, and the SBC.)
