Shake It Up! Disability and Gender-Based Violence

Date / Time

March 11, 2020

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center for this interactive workshop as we discuss the following questions:

I. What problems do we create when we decouple disability and sex/sexuality?
II. What particular vulnerabilities do people with disabilities face?
III. How do we break the cycle of silence?
IV. What does allyship and cross-disability solidarity look like?

Co-sponsored by Disability Cultural Center and Undergraduate Student Government.
