Barriers to Belonging

Join us for an engaging IDEA event titled "Barriers to Belonging." In this session, Jess Walters, the 2023–24 Virginia Health Equity & Justice Fellow, will describe the framework and 10 principles of Disability Justice. Drawing from their lived experiences, Jess will explore the critical need to improve accessibility accommodations in creative spaces. The talk will be approximately 10-15 minutes long, followed by a Q&A session. Following the talk, there will be a zine-making activity, where participants will use what they've learned from the presentation to reflect on their personal engagement with Disability Justice and apply this framework to their own lives and work. Refreshments will be available during the event.
