We all have some relationship to what is considered the “normal” or the “non-normative” body, and it’s likely a relationship laced with assumptions, judgement, and unacknowledged power and privilege.

In this workshop, participants will look at the dominant political framing of disability, examine its relationship to gender based oppression and racial oppression, while exploring a counter-narrative where all bodies and communities are valued.

The goal of this workshop is to support participants in their commitment to an intersectional political analysis which centralizes people of color and integrates disability oppression as a component of a justice based analysis of current conditions.

The afternoon will be divided into three portions: A three hour workshop with Patricia Berne via Zoom and in-person facilitation, a screening of the documentary Sins Invalid, and participant Q&A.
