Disability Justice Workshop: Building Coalitions For Collective Liberation

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

*Please be scent free! More accessibility info below* Come join fellow local activists in a community discussion about ways for justice movements to build coalitions with an emphasis on Disability Justice and liberation. Prisons don’t make us safer. Psychiatric hospitals don’t make us safer. The police don’t make us safer. These institutions imprison and commit acts of horrific violence against disabled, black, brown, queer, trans, disabled, mentally ill, and poor communities and communities of color, especially those most marginalized at the intersections of related oppressions. Let’s bring our movements together so we can build coalitions that can dismantle these institutions from all angles. Using Disability Justice as our uniting framework, we’ll break out into discussion groups led by different organizations to workshop ways to better connect our movements. Finally, we’ll come back together and share our new ideas and strategies for coalitions and collective liberation.
