Disability & Equity: A Deeper Conversation

  • Multicultural Service Center 4610 Southeast Belmont Street Portland, OR, 97215 United States (map)

This presentation will engage participants in learning from life experiences of people with disabilities and the disability rights movement. Presenters will discuss where the gaps lie in inclusion of people with disabilities, centering on those with identities that are underrepresented or systemically marginalized. With that background in mind, presenters will share recommendations for including people with disabilities in equity conversations such as the ten principles of disability justice. Participants will work in small groups to talk about these issues and begin to make plans on how to address them in their organizations and advocacy work.
