October is Disability Employment Awareness Month. As we near the end of 2021, more tension around return-to-work plans is on the rise — particularly in response to troubling and ableist trends that violate the ADA and move us farther away from the dream of Disability Justice.

Presenting partner Epiphanies of Equity brings together a panel of speakers who will provide information and insight about the current red-flag violations of the ADA, along with the framework of Disability Justice and how it expands disability rights.

Participants will learn about the history of advocacy for virtual and hybrid workspaces in Disability Inclusion/Justice work over the past two decades, how to advocate for accessible and equitable workplaces, and how to effectively implement Disability Justice in the workplace during the pandemic and beyond.

This event will have CART transcription and ASL interpretation.

Epiphanies of Equity provides Social Equity consulting and advocacy with a focus on the work of disability justice, antiracism, and systems-level reconstruction for equity and justice. Founder ChrisTiana ObeySumner is a social equity consultant, educator, and advocate with over a decade of multifaceted experience.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle and Epiphanies of Equity.
