The Racial Justice Network presents a conversation about Race and (Dis)ability hosted by the Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies and the Centre for Disability Studies.
How has the hostile environment impacted our most vulnerable? Putting (dis)ability on the race agenda, community members, activists and academics get together to discuss and find ways forward. The conversation will explore organising strategies to address Race and Disability in everyday practices at the personal and institutional levels.This event is part of the Racial Justice Network Collective Conversation Series which aims to explore the intersections of issues regarding race and colonial legacies.
