Join Inclusion London to hear about a new and exciting project designed to support DDPOs to become more intersectional and inclusionary in practice. Share your ideas and thoughts about what the project needs to do and how we can work together.
The course will be delivered via Webinar.
How can Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations put inclusion and intersectionality at the heart of their work and turn theory into practice?
In the light of recent Black Lives Matter protests in the UK and USA, along with the normalising of transphobic, xenophobic and discriminatory rhetoric and a widening structural inequality exacerbated by Covid-19, it is now more urgent than ever that the DDPO sector and our movement address how we – as a community – can move forward together ensuring no voices are left unheard.
If you are a Deaf or Disabled person interested in these issues and want to learn and discuss with your peers how the social model, co-production and intersectionality can better serve the disabled community, then please join us.
What you can expect:
- Find out about our new ‘With Us’ project and the opportunities to help shape our work to build our DDPO sectors’ understanding, knowledge and skills about intersectionality, co-production and the social model of disability
- Share in a ‘brave and safe space’ and facilitated break out rooms, your views about the issues, challenges and vision for a DDPO sector that embraces inclusion, equality and intersectionality
- Make connections in a supportive space of peers and allies, who have come together to understand and address the challenges and complexities of being multiply marginalised.
Who can attend
This event is open to any DDPO members interested in inclusion/intersectional issues, the social model, co-production, and Disabled and Deaf people with lived experience of having multiply marginalised identities.
