Webinar: Movement Work at the Intersections of Neurodiversity, Mad Pride, & Disability Justice

Sunday, April 15th

7pm et / 6pm ct / 5pm mt / 4pm pt

Mad, neurodivergent, and disabled people exist on the margins of society and even spaces supposedly \"for us,\" targeted by widespread ableism and sanism/mentalism. Autistic people spurred the development of a neurodiversity movement aiming to affirm the value of all neurodivergent people; psychiatric survivors spurred the development of mad pride movement to affirm the value of madness; and disabled people with many body/minded experiences have consistently been at the forefronts of movements around self-advocacy, independent living, peer supports, and disability rights. Disability Justice is a framework and set of practices that honor all bodyminds. Learn how Neurodiversity, Mad Pride, and Disability Justice intersect, what it means to divest from disavowal, and how to build cross-movement solidarity across fractures of medical oppression, trauma, and dis-identification as we work toward liberation.

Facilitated by Lydia X. Z. Brown
