Paving Towards an Inclusive World: Disability Inclusive Infrastructure

Event Date
Wednesday, January 04, 2023, 01:00PM

This webinar will address a variety of topics including:

1) How our current-day infrastructure at large continues to disenfranchise disabled/neurodivergent communities, further heightening the barriers to employment, housing, education, especially for disabled folks who live in lower-income, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), and migrant communities.

2) Exploring the institutional, attitudinal, social, transportation, and physical barriers that makes it harder for disabled/neurodivergent folks to fully participate in their environments and communities, further perpetuating institutionalized ableism.

3) Learn about the history and application of ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), including its’ limitations in enacting policies fully rooted in disability justice.

4) How disability inclusive infrastructure can produce sustainable solutions that center equity and inclusivity can be a tool for dismantling ableism, racial, and economic injustices in communities across the U.S.

5) Disrupting the modes of isolation disabled folks face through connecting communities, resisting capitalist norms that treat disabled, neurodivergent people as disposable, and paving the way towards securing 21st century social, economic, and human rights for all people.
