Event Details

Many call education the doorway to opportunity, but what happens when school itself becomes the barrier to your success? That has been the story for many disabled students in America. Ableism is defined as discrimination in favor of able-bodied people. This is often hard for those of us not experiencing it to identify. Well-intentioned people can believe that the solution to this is to create a focus on the disability, but it seems that’s not what disabled folks are asking for. On Thursday, April 25th come find out what a few of our panelists believe is the real solution to a nuanced issue facing our educational system.

Omaha Table Talk is a program which ensures everyone has a seat at the table – inviting all to take part in an open and honest dialogue about race, ethnicity, and other forms of difference, while enjoying a complimentary meal.

This event is free, open to the public (age 15 and older), ASL interpretation available, wheelchair accessible, and vegan/allergy-friendly. Registration is strongly encouraged so that specific diet requirements can be taken into account.

Please address questions or concerns about this event to info@inclusive-communities.org.
