Beyond Ramps and Rights: Disability and Its Significance for Social Justice Movements

Plenty of disabled/chronically ill folks are an integral part of all communities, resistance movements, history and cultures. Yet we still largely exist relegated to the margins and the cracks of even progressive spaces. Truth is: social justice movement can’t effectively fight homo/transphobia, misogyny, racism or be in solidarity with immigration, or Sovereignty struggles without a working understanding of Ableism. Why? Because it works as a mechanism of white supremacy, colonialism, eugenics, sexual violence, capitalism and the state control of bodies. Not exactly sure how this is true? Come find out! Become part of a growing movement of progressive communities working to deliberately integrate a disability justice practice into the core of their work.
