How can you help build a more accessible movement through your groups, organizations, activist organizing, or event/campaign planning?

Our groups and movements are stronger when we recognize everyone has something to contribute; and, organize in ways that support each other with what we need to participate.

What is accessibility? What are barriers to organizing together? How accessible are social justice movements now? How does accessibility impact who participates? Using an intersectional accessibility analysis – this workshop will be a space to reflect on thoughts, ideas and actions on accessibility, with a mix of practical scenarios to work through.

Accessibility: wheelchair accessible space, ASL-English Interpretation, TTC tokens available, vegan snacks, active listener, care attendant, single-stall accessible washrooms in building, workshop materials will be available in large font and USB

In her talk, Prof. Stremler dispels common myths about sleep, and addresses the challenges that arise during our sleeping lives. Sleep deprivation comes with personal and societal costs, but Prof. Stremler offers hope — practical advice about healthy sleep habits.
