Building a Disability Politic & Access-Centered Cultures

This workshop will illuminate the ways that disability is connected to other systems and oppressions that participants may already be addressing in the work. We’ll develop an expansive understanding of disability and ableism that’s rooted in historical context. The wisdom of disability-led movements will be the foundation that informs what our position in a broader movement ecosystem is.

We'll work to delineate the differences between accessibility and access with the goal of developing practices rooted in anti-ableist values that can shift culture. Information as to how a justice-oriented framework can benefit everyone will be given. Participants will have opportunities to share, hone, and rethink their approach to access by working through scenarios.

Speakers: Dustin Gibson, Ngozi Alston
