Mia Mingus staff and faculty discussion, “Accessibility and Inclusion: The Intersections of Disability Justice and LGBTQ Rights”

This is a past event.

Topic: Accessibility and Inclusion: The Intersections of Disability Justice and LGBTQ Rights.

Mia Mingus is a writer, educator and community organizer for disability justice and transformative justice. She is a queer physically disabled korean transracial and transnational adoptee raised in the Caribbean. She works for community, interdependency and home for all of us, not just some of us, and longs for a world where disabled children can live free of violence, with dignity and love. As her work for liberation evolves and deepens, her roots remain firmly planted in ending sexual violence.

Sponsored by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in partnership with the Office of Student Success and Advising, AccessAbility Services, the Department of Gender Studies, the Division of Student Life and the Weissman Center for Leadership.

Mia Mingus was a great speaker! The conversation she lead was really validating and confirming of my identities and experience here on campus and informative. I hope to see more speakers like here on campus in the future talking about disability, abelism, and being queer people of color.

"Just scratched the surface" -Mia. So true, look forward to much more and hope some of the seeds of wisdom take root with those in attendance and grow to bear fruit and nourish the whole community. It will be a lot of work, and we need to start collecting, sharing, and practicing with tools to make it happen.
