This workshop series is only for people in the Pittsburgh region who work within social justice movements or organizations that have a desire to integrate disability into their work and implement and increase access practices.
Workshop #1: Building a Disability Politic
This workshop illuminates the ways that disability is connected to the existing systems and oppressions your group is already addressing in the work. We will
develop an expansive understanding of disability and ableism that’s rooted in historical context. The wisdom of disability-led movements will be the foundation that informs your group’s position in a broader movement ecosystem.
Workshop #2: Building Access-Centered Cultures
This workshop delineates the differences between accessibility and access, with the goal of developing practices rooted in anti-ableist values that can shift culture. Information as to how a justice-oriented framework can benefit everyone will be included. Participants will have opportunities to share, hone, and rethink their approach to access by working through scenarios.
- Develop a deeper understanding for the ways that ableism impedes collective liberation.
- Build a container to analyze how a disability justice framework can be applied.
- Identify existing access practices, develop more and strategize ways to implement them.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
