Disability culture is vibrant and beautiful; however, these are not the words most people use to describe our community. Our workshop will go beyond typical disability training on ADA access to uncovering Disability culture, understanding Disability Justice Principles, and learning about access intimacy. Disability Justice (DJ) principles are critical in progressing the Disability movement to include leadership by those most impacted, intersectionality, interdependence, and unconditional love. This workshop will go deeper into these ideas and process how we can implement them in our daily lives.
