Program Full-Description

Workshop #1: Building a Disability Politic This workshop will illuminate the ways that disability is connected to the existing systems and oppressions that movements are already addressing in the work. We’ll develop an expansive understanding of disability and ableism that’s rooted in historical context. The wisdom of disability-led struggles will be the foundation that informs how we increase disability solidarity.

Workshop #2: Building Access-Centered Cultures This workshop will delineate 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 given.  Participants will have opportunities to share, hone, and rethink their approach to access by working through scenarios.

This program is ideal for:

Anyone that works within social justice movements or organizations that has a desire to integrate disability into their work and implement + increase access practices.

Training Outcomes:

Participants will leave with:

  • Context as to why access is necessary for liberation and working definitions around disability.
  • A deeper understanding of how a disability justice framework can support access implementation.
  • Better identify the existing access practices organization’s groups and individuals engage in and develop more.
  • Develop skills to implement access-centered practices.

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.
