Note: This event has been postponed indefinitely in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

This online event explores how faith and disability communities can take action to keep disabled and chronically ill people safe and alive during the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceeds benefit the Disability Visibility Project, Disability Justice Culture Club and the Color of Change Disabled Creatives and Activists Relief Fund. $15 – $50.

Inspired and framed by the documentary “Crip Camp,” speakers share the realities that disabled people face during COVID-19, provide examples of disability-led efforts for justice such as #NoBodyIsDisposable, share stories from mutual aid workers about how to build local networks for home delivery of essential resources and explore how faith communities can act in solidarity.
