March 21, 2023 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Join accessABILITY in celebrating Disability Awareness Month by learning about Disability Justice. This virtual 1.5 hour training is the first half of a two-part training on the disability community. In this workshop, we will explore how historical mistreatment of individuals with disabilities shape our current perspectives and biases. Then, we will discuss the impact of those perspectives and explore new, alternative viewpoints to reframe our understanding of disability.

We will cover topics such as:
- Disability History: Historical mistreatment of individuals with disabilities has shaped society’s current perspective and bias.
- Statistics: Current statistics for people with disabilities reveal America’s biases towards disability and shows the impact of the intersectionality between the largest marginality (disability) and other historically underserved communities.
- Models of Disability: How people think about disability affects how they feel about disability. Adapting new models and perspectives allows us to imagine a more accessible and equitable society for all.
- Barriers in Society: Our biases create barriers of inaccessibility and shape the reality for the disability community.
