offered by The Seattle MLK Jr. Organizing Coalition
This workshop will be a conversation between two disabled individuals: ChrisTiana ObeySumner, an autistic and multiply disabled Black nonbinary person, will provide perspective of how to move the Black Disabled Lives Matter and disability justice work forward sustainably, effectively, accessibly, and collectively. Elizabeth Ralston, a White accessibility consultant who is deaf and is the Founder of the Seattle Cultural Accessibility Consortium, will discuss the work that is needed within white spaces for moving towards solidarity with disabled BIPOC and how accessibility is a key part of this conversation. After presenting recommendations and themes, there will be a facilitated Q&A session for further discussion.
Presenter: ChrisTiana ObeySumner is a Black and indigenous, queer, non-binary, and multiply disabled person. They are the CEO of Epiphanies of Equity, a social equity consulting firm that particularly specializes in social change, intersectionality, antiracism, and disability justice. For almost two decades, they have dedicated their life and career to amplifying the importance of social equity — particularly narrative identity development and its role in cultural humility and allyship, bringing awareness to the lived experience of racialized ableism and externalizing antiblackness, and dismantling the psychosocial paradigms that underlie social injustice and inaction.
Elizabeth Ralston is an accessibility consultant working at the intersection of public health and arts & culture to help organizations make their events, spaces, and programs accessible to all. She is a white person with a disability and also the Founder of the Seattle Cultural Accessibility Consortium.
