What’s in a Word: Ableism in Everyday Language
Wednesday, February 24, 3-4pm

RSVP at go.uic.edu/UnlearningAbleism

Language is powerful and words matter. Join us for a discussion of where ableism can crop up in our everyday language, and bring your questions to this non-judgmental space!
Unlearning Ableism is a discussion series about disability issues and ableism as a system of privilege and oppression. For these discussions, we come together, share our own experiences around a topic, and engage with perspectives from disability culture. We welcome all people to join us, whether you identify as disabled, nondisabled, or somewhere in between.

Access Info: CART and ASL will be provided. Contact dcc@uic.edu or 312-355-7050 with any other requests.
