Course Description

This is part two of a two part series. Part one is two sessions and part two is two sessions. Each session is 4 CEs. This course is co-taught with Sins Invalid and / or Cory Silverberg. It is advised to take part one prior to part two as part two begins where part one ends.

Disability Justice (DJ) is a phrase and framework essential for all of us! The first part of this course offered an overview of the principles and tenants that create Disability Justice.
