In Conversation...about Disability Justice

 In Conversation … at the Center for “Race” Series will host a conversation about Disability Justice and be facilitated by Craig Rustici (English and Disability Studies) and Andrea Nerlich (Rehabilitation Counseling Programs), Hofstra University.

Disability justice has emerged from the Disability Rights Movement and disability studies to address ableism from an intersectional perspective, recognizing that disability relates to other forms of oppression and identity. These marginalized identities are influenced by systems that deny autonomy, dignity, and positive quality of life. Please join us In Conversation with disability justice activists Anita Cameron (Not Dead Yet), Liat Ben-Moshe (University of Illinois at Chicago), and Dustin Gibson (Harriet Tubman Collective) as we discuss decarcerating disability, improving health equity, and valuing life with disability.

Co-sponsored by The Disability Studies Program and The Rehabilitation Counseling Programs. This event is part of National Public Health Week and has been pre-approved for 1 cr. CEU by the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification. ASL interpretation and live captioning available.

This event is Co-Sponsored by the Cultural Center
