Webinar: Rise Up! Disability Resistance, History & Pride

Celebrate Ed Roberts Day with us!

Disability Rights protestors and Ed Roberts

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 webinar with discussion and activities that promote knowledge of disability history and support the journey to disability pride. Everyone is welcome!

We are offering this webinar in celebration of Ed Roberts Day (which is January 23). Register for whichever date works for you.
