4th Annual Day of Dialogue

No Longer An Afterthought: Toward Disability Awareness, Inclusion and Justice On Campus & In Society

 

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

 

The MCLA Day of Dialogue is a campus-wide alternative day of education, with suspended day classes to ensure full campus participation by students, faculty, and staff. This year’s event, held on Wednesday, October 20, will occur virtually to allow for the greatest participation. 
 
This year's theme, "No Longer An Afterthought: Toward Disability Awareness, Inclusion and Justice On Campus & In Society," encourages us to look at ways we think about and dialogue around disability. Please join us as we look at different ways to approach disability, understand ableism and the many ways it manifests, define disability (who is considered to be a person with a disability), and examine historical perspectives. Look back with us as we trace the roots of the disability rights movement, celebrate legislative accomplishments, and navigate our own campus spaces, including the classroom. 

Live sessions will be real-time captioned with the link to the captioning being provided in the chat.
