Washington Race Equity & Justice Initiative: Racialized Ableism – Before and After COVID-19

The Washington Race Equity & Justice Initiative (REJI) invites you to a webinar: Racialized Ableism – Before and After COVID-19. This session will discuss the intersectional impacts of COVID-19 on Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), disabled, and non-wealthy (particularly low income,) communities. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of the differences and connections between disability rights (ADA) and disability justice, medical ableism and medical racism, and the role environmental racism and social determinants of health play in the disparate impact on these communities. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to sharpen their analysis on these topics. Those who register will have access to the on-demand recording afterwards. 1.5 Ethics Credit Available. Register here.
