Disability, Madness and Sexual Violence; An Anti-Colonial BIPOC discussion

Please join us for a discussion on sexual violence, disability, and madness as BIPOC students and the barriers we face from in the university. We will talk about the challenges of working through the colonial and settler colonial practices that structure university classroom, bureaucracy and “best practices”. What are the gaps we fall through as disabled and mad BIPOC survivors as a consequence of disabling university practices? From potentially losing housing, to being required to constantly advocate for ourselves at the risk of being pushed out of the university if we don’t. We want to create and hold a space to start a dialogue on our struggles as BIPOC student survivors.

Please note that this session is only for self-identified Black and Indigenous People, and People of Colour (BIPOC)
