People with disabilities represent the world’s largest minority, and the only minority group that any of us can become a member of at any time. People with disabilities are also the third largest economic power behind China and the United States and yet they still experience barriers, prejudice, and bias on a daily basis. This workshop challenges all to more fully address ableist notions of how we think about, and label, our bodies, minds, and senses. You will learn tools to understand what disability is, the types of disability, the current language of disability, what ableism is, how you can actively work to fight against it, and tips for disabled people and allies alike to better ensure equity in all that you do.
Workshop hosted in collaboration with Creating Accessible Neighbourhoods.
CART captioning will be available at this workshop.
