Detroit Disability Power's Media and Anti-Ableism Workshop




Register Here: bit.ly/ddp_media_workshop


Deadline to register has been extended to Sunday, July 10.


Detroit Disability Power's mission is to leverage and build the organizing power of the disability community to ensure the full inclusion of people with disabilities in Metro Detroit. Our local media shapes our community's narrative every day, including what we come to know and how we think about disability. Through this workshop, we hope to give you the knowledge and tools to tell inclusive stories accurately and powerfully.


Please join us for this two-part event:

  • Part 1: Tuesday, July 12, 2022 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

  • Part 2: Wednesday, July 13, 2022 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

During this two-part event, we will learn how to use accurate language when talking about our disability community, practice framing stories and discuss how we relate to disability and how this informs our stories.

We will be in-person at the Damon J Keith Center for Civil Rights - 471 W Palmer, Detroit, MI 48202 - Rm 2242.
