“Disability justice is essential as an aspect of the university’s commitment to initiatives that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion,” said organizer Sue Sprague, director of disability resources at SUNY Cortland.
“In order for every person with a disability to have a sense of belonging on campus, it is necessary to look at longstanding systemic barriers and bias that we hold,” Sprague said. “This presentation invites all of us to examine how disability as a lived experience and an identity based in a history of oppression has impacted our efforts to have an accountable, consistent and just campus.”
