DIY Accessibility Brunch ‘n’ Learn: Centering Disabled Community Members

October 4, 2019

Join the Accessibility Ambassadors on Thursday, October 31 for a presentation by Jay Wilson and Corbett Laubignat of the Disability Resource Center. 

Corbett and Jay will help the audience think about how we frame and understand disability, how to question and change ableism, and ways to include and welcome people with a variety of disabilities. This presentation will be especially useful for faculty as they begin the conversation around accessibility. Please join us and share the event with anyone you think would benefit from it.

In light of the date: Costumes are optional, but encouraged!
