Disability Visibility

Suggested questions to facilitate the group discussion

  1. Why do stories from everyday people matter? Which experiences have stayed with you? How have they impacted your worldview? 
  2. How can we practice solidarity in order to advocate for Disability Justice? 
  3. How can we engage and expand the capacity to empathize with others to examine our belief systems and take action to reach a society where we value humanity? 
  4. How can we use the concepts of "Crip Time" and "Crip Space" to challenge the dominant ableist mindset which influences social and architectural constructs?
