21-Day Challenge: Disability Justice
October 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
We all know something about disability. Whether you are a person with a disability, know someone with a disability, or have simply seen people with disabilities, we probably all have an idea what we think it means to have a disability. During the month of October, we invite you to learn more about disability from a position of equality and pride. The 21-Day Disability Justice Challenge, which is modeled after United Way’s 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, will run through the month of October 2021. It is designed to raise your awareness, increase your understanding, and shift your perspective about disability in our culture.
The content in this Challenge will cover topics including the history of the disability justice movement, intersectionality, language, ableism, representation, accessibility, systemic inequalities for people with disabilities, allyship, disability pride, and resources for continued learning. The email you receive each day will include opportunities to learn more about these topics by watching videos, listening to audio clips, reading articles, and answering discussion questions.

Our two organizations share a vision for our community where every person is equitably supported, and all people benefit with full access and inclusion.
