Quick Hit: Call for Participants: Panel Discussion on Feminism and Disability (Washington, DC)

The Younger Women’s Task Force: DC Metro Chapter (YWTF: DC), a grassroots organization working to create a community for conversation and action among younger women and their allies, is planning a panel discussion on feminism and disability to be held in Washington, DC in late March. YWTF: DC is currently looking for panel members for this discussion, as well as groups who would be interested in partnering with us to make this an informative, inclusive, and successful event. Planned topics for this discussion include: why disability is a feminist issue; the historic exclusion of persons with disabilities from feminist communities; how feminist spaces can be made more inclusive and accessible; and including the perspectives of disabled feminists in conversations on today’s important issues.

If you have a recommendation for a great potential panelist or partner organization in the DC area, or if you’d like more information, please contact Caroline at croshea at gmail dot com.
