Focus on Disability Justice and Accessible Facilitation: January Trainers Network Workshop
Wednesday, January 8th
6:30pm - 8:30pm

Calling all popular educators, trainers, facilitators, instructors, teachers, and anyone interested in further developing those skills! The January Skillshare will explore disability justice and accessibility and will be facilitated by Matthew Gabriel. The conversation will go over the practical issues of creating and maintaining accessible spaces, and at the politics of disability, identity, and anti-oppression work. The two basic goals of the eve will be: - To understand disability justice as essential to anti-oppression and social justice work - To learn specific tools for increasing the accessibility of training programs and other social justice work and bring those into people's daily practice. "For some of you, these topics may be old hat, and for others, they may be new. Regardless, we hope that you'll come to contribute and to learn!"
