[event] Toronto: Anti-Racism For (Dis)abled Folks

Anti-Racism For (Dis)abled Folks: An Interactive Workshop
Led by Colin K Donovan

November 6, 2008 from 6-8 at the Senator Croll Apt, Common Room (341 Bloor Street W near St. George).

Join us as we explore the complexities of white supremacy within the (dis)ability movement. How does white privilege shape activism, lives and experiences with in a broad variety of (dis)ability and psychiatric survivor movements? What does it mean to model anti-ableist work after successful struggles led by folks of color while the (dis)ability movement continues to be white-dominated? Using Theater of the Oppressed/Oppressor techniques, we will explore these and other questions of allyship and accountability. No previous acting experience needed, just come ready to participate!
