Disability & Philanthropy Forum presents Disability Justice and Labor Rights

April 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the Disability & Philanthropy Forum’s for a webinar on Disability Rights Activism and Organizing on Thursday, April 1 from 1 PM – 2 PM ET.

Disability rights are universal civil and human rights, but these rights are not yet fully realized by society. People with disabilities continue to encounter systemic barriers that limit their economic prospects, well-being, and human rights. Attaining these rights requires more than compliance with the ADA or other current disability rights laws.  It also requires the advocacy and organizing of disability rights activists, whose targeted, strategic action has been crucial to expanding disability inclusion, rights, and justice.

Join us in a discussion with disability advocates and policy workers to learn how disabled organizing impacts disability-related policy, and how funders can support disability rights activism. CART will be provided. If you require another accommodation to fully participate in the webinar, please note it in your registration, or contact us at communications@disabilityphilanthropy.org. This free webinar is presented by the Disability & Philanthropy Forum.

This webinar series is free for all to attend. Register Here, no login required. See more details.
