Understanding Ableism: Nothing About Us, Without Us is an informative panel discussion on how people with disabilities/disabled people define ableism and how it shows up in their own lives.

The panel will also discuss the intersection of disability and other marginalized identities, especially race, other people’s role in combating ableism, how disability justice meshes with other civil rights issues and ways we can all support our collective work. The online event takes place on Zoom on Thursday, Jan. 21, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and you can register here. Your attendance is voluntary, and employees will not be compensated or receive overtime for participating. ASL and CART are provided. For other accessibility considerations, please email
