Black Histories, Disabled Futures is a free Cross Movement Organizing Workshop, facilitated by Justice Shorter. Justice, founder of SeededGround, is a Black Blind Lesbian woman from Washington DC. She is a national expert on Disability Inclusive Disaster Protections and Disability Justice. Her powerfully poetic speaking style and creative workshops center equity, access, inclusion, safety, dignity and belonging for all who participate. 

Join us as we:

  • Learn about America’s history of anti-blackness and its impact on present day disabled bodies and minds.
  • Identify the relevance of collective access, collective care and collective liberation across movements serving multi-marginalized communities.
  • Discuss actionable pathways of solidarity that strengthen the cultural work and illuminate the freedom dreams of disabled BIPOC folks.
