The Douglas Biklen Landscape of Urban Education Lecture Series

Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-SamarasinhaCome learn about disability justice–a movement building framework centering the leadership of Black and brown, queer and trans and other disabled folks marginalized within mainstream movements. We’ll talk about disability and accessibility in our communities and movements, view and discuss performance and writing by disabled queer and/or people of color artists, and share and build concrete tools to build spaces that center disabled genius and access.

Lambda Award winning queer disabled Sri Lankan/Irish femme writer and performance artist Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha maps luscious and vulnerable terrains of transformative love, survivorhood, sick and disabled, queer, femme of color genius and all the homes we claim, make, and deserve.
