Rise Up!

Disability Resistance, History & Pride

Disability Rights protestors

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!

Join us for this workshop with discussion and activities that promote knowledge of disability history and support the journey to disability pride. Everyone is welcome!

Select the location and date that works best for you. Please pre-register online at bit.ly/dnswmRiseUp2019 or contact Miranda at (269) 345-1516 x120. Let us know if you need an accommodation to participate.
