Understanding and Interrupting Ableism (Virtual)
Monday, February 27, 2023, 10:00am-12:00pm (PT)
Hosted by The YWCA of Greater Portland Social Justice Program. (Introductory level, non-disabled people especially encouraged to attend).
By the end of this workshop participants will be able to identify how ableism is connected to capitalism, colonization, and white supremacy. Participants will be able to identify some of the common assumptions and biases that uphold ableism as well as identify some common ableist microaggressions. Participants will have opportunities to brainstorm ways of interrupting ableist microaggressions. Participants will be able to brainstorm ways of responding when a white disabled person uses their marginalized identity to avoid accountability for racism.
Cost: $0-$30. Registration and more information here
