July 12, 2022 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Join the conversation about the impact of ableism on the disability community and learn how shifting our perspective allows us to be allies.
In celebration of 32 years of the ADA, accessABILITY is hosting a Disability Education Workshop to introduce our neighbors to introductory concepts within the disability community with the goal of exploring bias and creating allies. This virtual, two-hour session explores how history and mistreatment of the disability community has shaped our social understanding of individuals with disabilities and provides alternative solutions to shift perspectives and create stronger allies.

Together, we will build allyship through exploring language, interactions, societal frameworks of understanding disability, confronting our bias, and learning more about ourselves through disability-based framework.
