I thought you might be interested in a FREE virtual event we are hosting this Friday, July 10, at 10:00am (CST) as part of our Disability Pride Month and ADA 30 Anniversary celebrations. The webinar, Reporting on Disability with Dignity, will focus on 1) historical representation of people with disabilities within the media, 2) common misconceptions and language mistakes frequently used by reporters, and 3) how to speak about disability with dignity from an empowering point of view.
We have a few other great virtual events happening this month, as well, as we continue our celebrations.
All events are FREE to attend but do require registration
July 16 – Black Disabled Lives Matter – A National Outlook from Thought Leaders
July 24 – Black Disabled Lives Matter – An Intimate View from Self-Advocates in Our Community
July 30 – Gaelynn Lea in Concert
Check out the details and register for the rest of these events at STARKLOFF.ORG/ADA30. While there, take a moment to sign our ADA recommitment pledge. We’ll send you a cool sticker that you can proudly display to show your commitment to an inclusive world for all people with disabilities!!!
