Event Details

Due to unforseen circumstance, the March 3, 2013 opportunity for this workshop has been cancelled and is being re-scheduled.  We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.


This workshop will talk about both the political and practical aspects of accessibility in political organizing. This workshop will focus on the political importance of building inclusive movements, the strength that including diverse groups of disabled people brings to organizations and movements and what some of the things we should be putting in place to make events and organizations more accessible.

 Trainer:  A.J. Withers is a longtime radical disability and anti-poverty activist. They are also the author of Disability Politics and Theory (Frenwood) and the If I Can't Dance is it Still My Revolution zine series and blog (still.my.revolution.tao.ca). As a disabled and trans organizer, A.J. thinks a lot about access, barriers and privilege and how to transform social movements to be inclusive.
