Program Full-Description

PeoplesHub Circle connecting movement activists from disability & worker/labor justice communities, and those already organizing at the intersections. 

The increased labor organizing across a range of sectors (warehouse workers, baristas, non-profit staff, higher education faculty, etc) has broad implications for all movements, including disability justice. 

Specifically, it means that labor unions, worker centers and affiliated organizations are in a process not only of growth, but also transformation. Labor Notes, co-sponsor of the Circle, supports worker organizations through such change.

Disabled and chronically ill workers, especially those who are BIPoC, have always organized for justice on the job; this Circle will highlight some of this work. 

The Circle will also raise key questions regarding the opportunities and challenges around building real solidarity. Participants will be invited to share their own stories and strategies.

Azza & Deborah, as moderators, will frame the session, alongside multiple guests offering brief observations and questions.. These provocations will serve as touch-points for small and full- group discussions. 

The event will  also be a springboard for future networking and collaboration amongst disabled workers.

Participants will leave with….

  • A better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that arise when working towards worker/labor & disability justice.
  • A commitment to organizing in ways that integrate disability justice into worker/labor campaigns & a greater awareness around worker/labor issues within disability justice efforts. 
  • Concrete examples of worker/labor & DJ solidarity in action.

This program is ideal for disabled workers, people involved with worker organizing who’re interested in disability justice & disability justice activists who’d like to learn more about worker/ labor organizing.

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.
