As part of Disability Pride Week at the University of Washington, the ASUW Student Disability Commission & the Seattle Disability Justice Collective present:

Disability Justice: Intersectionality and Grassroots Organizing @ Condon 110A, 5:30-7PM

Come join the Disability... Justice Collective in an engaging discussion about activism and radical organizing at the intersections! We will be discussing the unique challenges and opportunities for those experiencing "multiple marginalities" in society; that is, those who identify as disabled AND queer/transgendered, poor, and people of color. Find out who the DJC is, what kind of disability justice movement we want to create in Seattle, and who we seek as allies in our quest for liberation. This will be an interactive workshop, so come prepared to discuss scenarios related to access, collaboration, community building, and tensions related to claiming multiple identities that seek justice.
