What is Disability Justice? People often express feeling intimidated and ill-equipped to unpack what we’ve been taught about disability, and how to support and advocate for disabled people in our everyday lives. This workshop is a fabulous opportunity for you to dive into the magic of disability justice with SURJ and Alex Locust at the helm.
With “Spill the Disabili-Tea™”, Alex will be facilitating an interactive discussion of disability justice for those committed to elevating their support for disabled folks in their community. Using his lived experience, education, and advocacy know-how, he’ll lead a candid conversation exploring the following questions (and more):
Who is “disabled” and what creates that experience?
What is “disability justice?”
What’s the “right way” to interact with people with disabilities?
How can I do better about those tricky “microaggressions?”
What’s the difference between “access” and “inclusion?”
Is disability a cultural experience and how can that intersect with other cultural identities?
How can I integrate these skills in the community (e.g. Pride celebrations, workplace culture, community gatherings)?
Come join us for an afternoon of real talk, experiential exercises, group work, and lots of laughs as we all Spill the Disabili-Tea™.
