Intersectionality is a popular word in today’s news, but what does it mean for people with disabilities who are experiencing other forms of marginalization and identities, such as being Black, immigrant, or transgender?
Join the Disability Inclusion Network for a Lunch and Learn led by Carrie Basas, Director of the Governor’s Office of the Education Ombuds, where we discuss what intersectionality is from a disability perspective and how we can act in solidarity to advance racial and disability justice, as well as social change. Let’s create a WA workplace together where we can bring our whole selves.
