Rethinking Diversity, Reintroducing Disability: Conversations on Disability History, Advocacy, and Rights

Colloquium | February 12 | 5-7 p.m. |  Career Center (2440 Bancroft Way)

 OPEN (Opportunities for Postdoc Equity Networking)

Disability is too often left out of the academic and political discourse concerning equity, diversity and inclusion. Yet disability is a core aspect of these values and intersects with all other marginalized groups for which
equity, diversity, and inclusion are critical. Join us for a trailer screening of “Crip Camp” by filmmaker and disability rights activist James Lebrecht, followed by a lively panel discussion with esteemed disability scholars and activists from the Bay Area to discuss disability history, identity, rights, and movements.

Panel:
James Lebrecht, Filmmaker
Denise Sherer Jacobson, Disability Rights Activist
Lainey Feingold, Disability Rights Advocate
Dr. Cathy Kudlick, Faculty member at the Department of History, SF STATE

Moderator:
Gagan Chhabra, Visiting Scholar, UC Berkeley

Light refreshments will be served.
