Disability Justice Discussion Group – March 12th, 2019 4pm-6pm

Join Students for Barrier-free Access for our Disability Justice Discussion Group. This is an opportunity for our community to engage in discussions about what disability justice means to them, and what it looks like in practice. Best of all, there are no required readings! Drop-ins and new attendees are always welcome!

At this meeting we will watch a short video together and discuss the following questions:

1. What is disability justice?
2. What does disability justice mean to you?
3. What is the starting point or premise of disability rights, versus disability justice?
4. What changes might the Ford policy bring to the student experience at U of T? How can we understand these changes and their impacts from a Disability Justice perspective?

We recognize that people contribute to conversations in many different ways and there is no expectation that Discussion Group participants engage verbally. Participating through writing, art, and silently sharing space with everyone are all very welcome.
