Creating Space for People with Disabilities in Reproductive Justice

This identity caucus will center the experiences of activists with disabilities (visible and invisible), chronic pain, etc. in order to host an unapologetic discussion of what the reproductive justice movement needs to include us. The facilitators, who will join us in person and remotely via skype, will lead us in a deep discussion of how reproductive justice organizers can facilitate accessible spaces and how we need to change our conversations about sex education, sexuality, and sexual stigma. We will also look at the way the anti-choice movement has co-opted narratives of disability to push their regressive and harmful agenda. This session is queer-affirming, welcoming activists of all genders, presentations, and sexualities. There will be an ASL interpreter and any materials that are provided will have large-print versions with image descriptions. People without disabilities are invited to attend, listen and learn.
