This presentation examines the effects of intersectionality on people with disabilities. Intersectionality is a framework for understanding how people’s overlapping identities contribute to their experiences with privilege and oppression. Presenters will define ableism, racism, sexism, classism and other forms of oppression and address their impact on people with disabilities. We will look at ways to build a more inclusive society for all.

Note: Participants are encouraged to complete Ableism 101 and 102 before attending this workshop to gain a framework for understanding the oppression of people with disabilities.
