Evening with Mia Mingus: Disability in Queerness, POC Communities, and Transformative Justice

Monday, April 17th | 5:30PM - 7:30PM | HUB 332

Join us for an evening with Mia Mingus as she shares about her experiences as a queer disabled woman of color searching for a political framework that could hold disability and ableism--what later became known as "disability justice." Mingus will also talk about how her work for disability justice is connected to her work for transformative justice. This event will open with remarks from Mingus, followed by a Q&A and conversation with the audience.

Co-sponsored by the D Center at the University of Washington and ASUW Student Disability Commission.

FREE + OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
