Black Disability Histories: Reflections, Narratives, Futures with the Youth Alliance for Intersectional Justice

Join the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) at The Hub for a conversation about neurodiversity, disability and racial justice with youth from the Youth Alliance for Intersectional Justice (YAIJ). This event is led by youth who are “intimately knowledgeable about life at the intersections” (YAIJ). You will hear and learn from youth with firsthand experiences of disability and racialization. Recognizing that neurodiversity can be understood through an assets-based perspective, this conversation will re-define and illuminate difference as strength. You will learn more about how to meaningfully cultivate spaces that welcome neurodiverse and racialized youth in a way that reaches beyond accommodation. At UTSC, prioritizing intentional inclusion means deepening our understanding of multiple perspectives and knowledge through experiential learning within and beyond the academy. Register online to attend this conversation, happening on March 16 at 2:00pm EST at The Hub in Highland Hall (UTSC).


The host would like this event to be accessible to all interested in attending. If you have any questions or requests to best accommodate your participation, please contact the event co-ordinator at edio.utsc@utoronto.ca
