Who can attend? Students at any level who are excited about the intersection of disability, race and accessibility Those who can't register directly for the course should reach out to Annie.
Please remember to help us create an inclusive, respectful, and accessible environment for all participants. This means many things but some examples are: taking turns when speaking; introducing yourself and helping to improve caption accuracy by speaking clearly and slowly; keeping your video on if possible to make lip reading easier; remembering to do the reading, listen and avoid assuming you know what others experience; do the work to teach yourself and learn together; check in regularly; and let others speak before speaking again.
