Rise Up: Disability Resistance, History & Pride

disability rights protestJoin us for an interactive workshop with discussion and activities that promote knowledge of disability history and support the journey to disability pride.

Many of us in the disability community are unaware of the depth of our culture and history and feel shame and stigma instead of pride around our disability identities. Family, friends and human service professionals also have a lack of knowledge of disability history and struggle to find ways to support our journey to disability pride.
Let’s change that!
