Have you tried to combat ableism lately?

Continue to ask yourself that question. Especially as of recent events. Are you as radical as you say you are?

Located on thje 2nd Floor/Learn Lab of the Roxbury Innovation Center, join Mickey Valentine for a workshop on the imperative to include disability justice and an analysis of ableism in radical and organizing spaces.

Alexis Toliver, of the Harriet Tubman Collective (founder) and the National Black Disability Coalition will moderate the conversation.

There is a suggested donation at the door.

Room capacity is 49 people.

ACCESS NOTES ABOUT THE SPACE [Will Be Constantly Updated]

The 66 and the 47 buses are the closest forms of transportation. The SL5 is also very close. All buses are wheelchair accessible (in theory, but understanding that access can be difficult regardless)

For folks using The Ride, the address is 2300 Washington Street.
This space is wheelchair accessible.

We have 2 ASL interpreters confirmed and are securing CART access – please RSVP with your needs by emailing [email protected] or messaging the DC on facebook so we can provide the appropriate services for you

We will have a sensory room available on the same floor as the workshop.

Free child care will be available.

It is perfectly fine to leave early; if needed, for any reason. (work, children, The Ride being…The Ride).
