Outing: Spill the Disabili-Tea (SoCal): An intro to disability justice

  • Five Acres Zeilstra Center 747 West Mountain View Street Altadena, CA 91001 United States (map)

"Spill the Disabili-Tea" is an interactive discussion of disability justice, centering disabled voices and providing a space to explore how to elevate inclusion efforts in various community spaces. Using lived experience, education, and advocacy know-how, Alex Locust will lead a candid conversation exploring the following questions (and more):

-Who is "disabled" and what creates that experience?
-What is "disability justice?"
-What's the "right way" to interact with people with disabilities?
-How do I do better about those tricky "microaggressions?"
-What's the difference between "access" and "inclusion?"
-Is disability a cultural experience and how can that intersect with other cultural identities?
-How can I integrate these skills in the community (e.g. Pride celebrations, workplace culture, community gatherings)?
-How can we center disabled voices in community practices?

Whether you identify as a person with a disability or as an ally, come join me for an afternoon of real talk, experiential exercises, group work, and lots of laughs as we all Spill the Disabili-Tea on a subject that is near and dear to my heart.
