Disability and Abuse: Accessibility and Best Practices

This workshop introduces audiences to the essential intersections of abuse and disability through a disability justice lens. It focuses on the complex barriers and accessibility concerns people with disabilities face when requesting services or receiving justice. We will cover disability, ableism, the perceived vulnerability of the disability community, the deep intersections with QTBIPOC communities, and accessibility tips. We hope to inspire and challenge the audience to make radical access possible for all.
