Dis/Representation: Reading Into Disability

This is a disability justice literature project by Disability Art and Culture Project, Portland Community College Disability Services, GimpGirl Community, and other community partners.

The next meeting of our disability justice reading group is Thursday, October 24, from 6:00-8:00pm at Portland Community College Sylvania Campus’s Library 204, in Portland, OR. Parking is $5. (If the fee is prohibitive contact disabilityartculture@gmail.com so we can find a solution.) More information on parking and bus routes can be found on the Parking Services website.

If you can’t make it in person, you can participate in real time at home! Or join us in discussion of disability studies, literature, justice, and community, here or in our facebook group, anytime. Go to Discuss Online to find out how.

    Yes, developmentally disabled people are welcome as well as anyone else who’s interested! We’re working on making summaries of the readings, and/or more visual concept maps, available in accessible language/lower grade levels. The goal is to get those up in the next week.
