Anti-Ableism and its significance for all justice driven work

An evening with Sebastian Margaret

A Disabled Transgender Nonconforming queer first gen – immigrant, they remain passionate about the validity and glory of imperfect body/minds and eroding the exclusion, segregation and erasure faced by disabled folks in all progressive spaces.

An interactive and strength-based presentation that explores Disability Rights, awareness and justice as a doorway to understanding key systems of oppression at their deepest level.
