Description

Join us for the first-ever sister affiliate event of the national Disability Intersectionality Summit (DIS), DIS 2018: Bay Area.

Please note no one will be turned away from the event due to an inability to pay for a ticket. Please pay what you can to attend. Donations will go back into the community to disabled organizers, presenters and artists. To pay what you can or buy a ticket, please click the Tickets button.

DIS national is a biennial one-day conference, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that focuses on the experiences and knowledge of disabled people who have multiple diverse identities. DIS redirects the currents of power and conversation to marginalized disabled people living in our communities, particularly Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous and People of Color with disabilities.

DIS 2018: Bay Area will video stream into the national DIS keynotes from Mia Mingus and Anita Cameron, and respond together through dialogue. We will have a maker’s faire featuring disabled artists, entrepreneurs, collectives, organizations, artists, and writers, specifically those who are multiply marginalized as well as a celebration of the release of Resistance & Hope, an anthology edited and published by Alice Wong of Disability Visibility Project.


We envision DIS 2018: Bay Area to be a critical and loving space where community can come together to elevate the narratives, work, and knowledges of multi-marginalized people with disabilities, particularly BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color).

Light breakfast and boxed lunches will be available. If you require any accommodations including access to interpreters, food allergies, etc. by emailing your access needs and any concerns/questions to Disbayareainfo@gmail.com.

This event is sponsored by the World Institute on Disability and DIS National.
