|Poster for Different Lenses, One Vision conference.|
Next Wednesday, November 18, I will be offering a public lecture on police violence and disability at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health for their “Different Lenses, One Vision: A collaborative discussion on ‘otherness’” conference.
I argue that the experiences of people with disabilities must be part of our national conversation about police use of force. People with disabilities are frequently targets of police violence. Disability intersects with race, class, gender, sexuality, and other categories of identity, often intensifying risk and degree of marginalization.
The good news is that if we approach this problem the right way, we can build a more just and humane society for everyone.
My talk is at at 5:30 at the Kresge Cafeteria.
