When you become an ally to the disability community, you choose to focus on ability and you empower others to do the same.

This workshop will explore the history and current challenges of the disability rights movement, providing individuals with a larger context to consider when making decisions that impact people with disabilities. Participants will become more effective allies through learning practical ways to support the disability community at work and at home.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key moments in the history of the disability rights movement.
  • Examine current challenges to the disability rights movement.
  • Describe how disability rights intersect with other social justice movements, e.g., Black Lives Matter.
  • Demonstrate ways to be an effective ally to the disability community.
