On a light blue background, there is bold gray lettering and an icon of a purple mug with an orange tea tab hanging over the side. Across the top is a red banner with te RSVP link. At the lower left is a small image of DCC House (yellow and purple with a lawn and a small orange cat) and the In Our Own Words logo. At the lower right is a list of dates with topics and access info, in smaller gray lettering. In Our Own Words is a community gathering and intentional space for people who identify as disabled or are exploring their experience with disability. We define disability and disability experience broadly to include any kind of body or mind that doesn’t fit into cultural norms about what a bodymind should be and do. And we welcome those in our community who think they may have a disability but aren’t sure. Whether you have an official diagnosis or not, this space is yours. We ask that nondisabled folks respect that this is an intentional space for disabled people to build community with one another.
