Disability Justice is about ensuring access to all elements of life and letting those with disabilities determine their own individual needs. It includes elements of difference and allows people to be their whole self while including space for self-care, reflection, and hard discussions.
Michele Mashburn will discuss elements of disability justice, the difference between accommodation and access, and how the attitude of inclusion will benefit all groups. We will also discuss Ableism, models of disability, and how to create a supportive community no matter what happens.
Michele is the Director of San Jose Peace and Justice Center and a cohort member of Creating Freedom Movements.
After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.

DIRECTIONS TO RENGSTORFF PARK AND THE CEDAR ROOM
Head south (away from the Bay) on Rengstorff Ave. (in Mountain View) from 101 or Central Expressway until you cross the train tracks. Then turn left at the intersection (with a traffic light) that says "Stanford Ave.-->" and
"<--Community Center". That puts you into the Community Center's parking lot. In the parking lot, veer to the right, and then turn left, and park alongside the right-hand side of the Community Center. Enter where you see the Humanist Community sign. The map of the location is shown below.
