Disability Justice: Opportunities and Opportunists
This special online event features the emerging movement for Disability Justice (DJ) and the prominence of multiracial women leaders. A dynamic presentation, recently hosted by the New York Freedom Socialist Party, will highlight the 10 Principles of Disability Justice and its anti-capitalist, intersectional perspective, which recognises the leadership of those most impacted. Sharing examples of liberals’ attempts to co-opt DJ, speaker Kendra Scalia talks about the organised pushback against these opportunists. Kendra is a disabled queer woman, healthcare policy analyst and disability justice organiser. She is currently involved in a coalition with agency providers and unions, which is leading a fight to raise home care workers’ wages.
After hearing from Kendra, we’ll discuss how DJ principles can energise the movement in Australia and explore the many similarities.
The event, which is co-hosted by Radical Women and Freedom Socialist Party, is a benefit for the Freedom Socialist and Freedom Socialist Organiser fund drive. Donations will be requested.
