Rise Up! Disability Resistance, History & Pride


Rise Up!
Disability Resistance, History & 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!

Join us

We are hosting a Lunch & Learn event on January 23, 2017 from 12:00 noon to 1:30 PM in both our Kalamazoo or St. Joseph offices. Join us for a free lunch with discussion and activities that promote knowledge of disability history and support the journey to disability pride. Everyone is welcome!

Please RSVP to one of the locations listed and let us know if you need an accommodation to participate or have any dietary requirements.
