Defining Disability: What Does Disability Mean to You?

What does the identity "disabled" mean to you? Come together as a community to discuss the definitions of "disability" and what it means to be disabled. We'll discuss ableist language, the history of the disabled identity, and envision as a community what a non-ableist world would look like to and for us! A zine making activity will be provided at the end.

This event is Thurs, May 9th at the CCC staff lounge from 5:00-6:30pm. Snacks and refreshments will be provided! Live streaming will be available with the possibility of live captioning. Please note this event is scent-free, so before entering, folks need to be mindful of any scents they may be wearing, such as scented perfumes.
