PeoplesHub Workshop – Connect online as an individual

But I Should Be Able To – Healing Internalized Ableism


ASL Interpretation and CART will be provided

Internalized ableism is an obstacle we all face, but for disabled people, it can be both deadly and a source of deep shame.


Join a community of disabled people and long-time disabled organizers for a deeper look at the ways internalized ableism operates in our daily lives and in our organizing.


Together we’ll identify new strategies to address internalized ableism for when we’re together and when we’re apart.

This workshop is part of a larger initiative by PeoplesHub and other partners to center the wisdom of chronically ill and disabled communities.


Please join us for the workshop alone or sign up for the whole series, which includes a circle, workshops, strategy clinics, and care clinics.
