Come to this crash course on disability justice- a movement building framework created by sick and disabled Black and brown queer people. In this workshop we’ll talk about what disability issues and organizing look like in Black and brown communities, what work the disability rights movement has done and what it’s left behind, and how we can conspired to make cross- accessible movements for liberation where disabled people are leaders. We will share concrete tools for creating access in actions, organizing and cultural spaces and create space to see the disability stories in all our communities. The workshop will be facilitated by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha. Leah is a disabled queer Sri Lankan/ Roma writer, facilitator and disability justice organizer who works with the disability justice collective Sins Invalid and other people-of-color-led disability collectives.
