White Fund Presentation: They Must Not Stamp Us Out: Why We Need Disability Justice

April 12, 11:30 am to 12:30 pm

Lydia Brown, disability justice advocate, will present the April 12 White Fund lecture.

Don’t Miss This White Fund Presentation by Disability Justice Advocate Lydia X. Z Brown

“We are sick, disabled, mad, wobbly, lopsided, flappy,” according to Brown. “We are everywhere — working, loving, playing, laboring for liberation, yearning for community. …working for disability justice and freedom…Disability oppression is deeply connected with all forms of violence…We are constantly erased and forgotten, but this is not the way things have to be. Disability does not have to be something scary, broken, or sad. Disability justice challenges us to imagine and build a world where each one of us is valued for all of our humanity.”

The lecture  is one of several events scheduled in recognition of “All Abilities Week” which celebrates individuals with disabilities.

Free and open to the public.
