Anchor Coworking Space - Saturday, June 16th and Sunday, June 17th (2018)
In my experience, discussing disability is a new practice for many people. People often express feeling intimidated and ill-equipped to unpack what we've been taught about disability, and how to advocate for disabled people in our everyday lives.
Well as the old adage goes, "practice makes perfect" and this workshop is a fabulous opportunity for you to dive into the magic of disability justice with your favorite Glamputee at the helm. With "Spill the Disabili-Tea™", I will be facilitating an interactive discussion of disability justice for those committed to elevating their support for disabled folks in their community. Using my lived experience, education, and advocacy know-how, I'll lead a candid conversation exploring the following questions (and more):
-Who is "disabled" and what creates that experience?
-What is "disability justice?"
-What's the "right way" to interact with people with disabilities?
-How do I do better about those tricky "microaggressions?"
-What's the difference between "access" and "inclusion?"
-Is disability a cultural experience and how can that intersect with other cultural identities?
-How can I integrate these skills in the community (e.g. Pride celebrations, workplace culture, community gatherings)?
Come join me for an afternoon of real talk, experiential exercises, group work, and lots of laughs as we all Spill the Disabili-Tea™ on a subject that is near and dear to my heart.

One arm is dark skinned with pink painted nails and a tattoo that reads "Roll up on 'em" with a wheelchair. The other arm, white, is furry with arm hair and has long fuschia painted nails, extending a pinkie out in a dignified manner. Below reads text that says "pinkies out!" Poster background is bright and colorful, with a rainbow assortment of shapes and designs.
