LEAP SESSION: EQUITY AND INTERSECTIONALITY
Peri Jude Radecic, CEO, Disability Rights PA and Imani Barbarin, Director of Communications and Outreach , Disability Rights PA
Peri Jude and Imani will offer their experience and perspective on equity for people with disabilities, opportunities for organizations and communities to create a more equitable and accessible reality for everyone, and the intersectionality of visible and invisible disabilities with race, gender, and other lived experiences.
Purpose: Attendees will have a greater understanding of invisible and visible disabilities, how disability rights and experience intersect with race, socioeconomic realities, gender, and sex, why it matters to consider how our spaces and practice are or aren’t accessible to everyone, and opportunities to implement equity.
