MLK, Jr. Celebration: Choose in this Crucial Moment...to be an Ally


Friday, January 20, 2012 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Through a discussion about disability within the lens of diversity, we’ll explore possible similarities between the civil rights movement and the disability rights movement, and the intersection of concepts such as ableism and privilege. We’ll also approach disability as culture, and various models of disability in society. We’ll also address how we all play an important role in effectively engaging campus, and society, to break the norms
that have placed barriers in front of people with disabilities.

 Sponsor: Disability Access Services
