Intersectional Anti-Racist Practice with the Disability Community

Intersectional Anti-Racist Practice with the Disability Community

Session Description

Our session will discuss the use of intersectional, anti-oppressive, and critically culturally competent approaches to anti-racist social work practice with the disability community in the United States context. The disability community makes up 26% of the U.S. population, and there are many intersections between communities of color and the disability community, yet we rarely make these connections as a profession. Join our session to develop your disability lens and build some disability competence while learning about the disability justice movement.

Learning Objectives

  • To explore an anti-oppressive, intersectional model of practice with the disability community

  • To understand the importance of using an intersectional lens in anti-racist practice

  • To demonstrate best practices in empowering the disability community as anti-racist practitioners
