D Isability Justice Caucus January Meeting says
For our January Meeting, the NFC Disability Justice Caucus will be discussing the 4th principle of Disability Justice:

"Like the above principles, Disability Justice shares two additional principles with other justice-based movements — an Anti-Capitalist Politic and a Commitment to Cross Movement Organizing. We are anti-capitalist as the very nature of our mind/bodies resists conforming to a capitalist “normative” productive standard, with the actual construction of “disability” derived from the exploitation of the body in an economy that sees land and human as components of profit, deriding the integrity of our very real crip labor. Necessarily cross movement, Disability Justice shifts how social justice movements understand disability and contextualize ableism, lending itself toward a united front politic."-
