Count Me In: Ableism in LGBTQ+ Spaces , Tuesday. Sept. 13, Building 2N, Room 110, 2:30pm – 4:30pm

Ableism is one of the “-isms” that tend to be ignored when discussing activism work. In this workshop, Mickey Valentine Thomas will use their personal experiences as well the art of dialogue to have an open discussion about ableism and to allow folks to unpack normalized, but not okay, behaviors that they have perpetuated in safer spaces.

Some of the terms that will be discussed will be ableism, disability, and microaggressions. Activities that will be done will involve walking in the facilitator’s shoes in an activity as well as having open discussions in the space.

This is a PG CLUE event, presented in partnership with the Center for Student Accessibility.
