JUL 5

Disability and social justice

5 July 2021, Woodbrooke online

Since the 1970s, disabled people have turned approaches to disability upside down, arguing we need to focus on environments and attitudes which disable, rather than the deficits of the person. What does this mean, and how can we work together to build a more inclusive world? If we aspire to “Rights not Charity" and “Nothing About Us, Without Us", what role is there for non-disabled allies?
