rEVOLution: How Two Multiply-Marginalized Women Found Each Other -- and Their Purpose -- in the Disability Justice Movement (Event hosted by TCC)
Wednesday, Oct. 27, 3 - 4:30 p.m.
Join Independent Living power couple, Ami Hyten and Reyma McCoy McDeid, as they discuss their work to shift disability-led spaces from a "rights" to a "justice" focus. Speaking from fifty years of combined experience in both service delivery and advocacy for disabled people, Ami and Reyma will discuss the intentions that created the disability rights movement, how those efforts impact disabled people today, and what needs to happen next to ensure liberation for the world's largest marginalized community.
