Best Practices for Making Direct Actions Accessible for People with Disabilities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For people with disabilities (PWD), direct actions by community groups can be difficult to attend. PWDs are limited in access to modes of resistance such as marches, die-ins, and confrontations. This workshop will present insights on how to center sustainable and accessible involvement in practice. Participants will learn how to structure direct actions as expressions of self-care and self-love that benefits others, direct actions that are energizing in their collaborative spirit, and that improve the general understanding of the needs of PWDs.
