This day-long workshop will introduce two major frameworks and approaches: Disability Justice and Transformative Justice. It will introduce major concepts and understandings of terms such as access, ableism, interdependency, the medical industrial complex, the state, the prison industrial complex, trauma and accountability. For those already familiar with these issues, this workshop will help deepen their understanding of Disability Justice and Transformative Justice. The majority of this workshop will be teaching and building a knowledge base, working in small groups and watching media. We will strive to create a space that is as interactive as possible.
