The panel celebrates Disability Identity and Culture Month by highlighting the role of Disability Studies in shaping scholarly and grassroots conversations following the motto “Nothing About Us Without Us”.  Critical education extends a bridge between pedagogy and activism. Panelists will discuss the importance of community solidarity in relation to critical education and activism, focusing on two themes: 1) holistic approaches to education that prioritize lived experience and grassroots knowledges in diverse cultural contexts, and 2) the key role of solidarity (not charity) in successful community organizing with rather than for otherwise marginalized disabled people.

Sponsored by Disability Studies, the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, and the Miller Center for Student Disability Services
