An Intersectional Approach to Disability Inclusion

Location: Salon A-1 (Lower Level)

People with disabilities (PWD) make up 20% of the population, but our needs are often overlooked. This creates real harm and exclusion for PWD, many of whom are also members of other marginalized groups. Diversity and inclusion efforts must include PWD, and in turn, disability rights work must include the leadership of multiply marginalized PWD. We will discuss intersectionality and ableism, ableism’s inherent connection to white supremacy, and how this relationship must inform our approaches to changework.
