PeoplesHub Clinic – Connect online as an individual

Community Care Clinic for Disabled and Chronically Ill Movement Folks

 

Please join us in creating this community care peer support space.

 

There is a particular reality around what it means to be a social justice warrior and be disabled.

 

In this clinic space we will ask/answer questions such as: 

 

  • What does it mean in our activism, in our movements, in our work and in our communities to be all in? 
  • What sacrifices are inherent, what do we gain, what do we give up and what is expected of us? 
  • Am I worthy, do I have the ability to be in the movement, do I have a place here?

 

Unfortunately, support groups at home are often not enough. We need expanded possibilities around how we live and work as disabled and chronically ill people.

Tuesday, April 7th

 

From 9-11am PST/ 11am-1pm CST/ 12-2pm EST

This clinic is ideal for:

 

Folks who identify as disabled and/or chronically ill and/or consider themselves to be movement or social justice warriors who believe in disability justice.

Clinic Outcomes:

 

The clinic space we are cultivating will be a supportive place where multiple realities can exist at the same time. We will meet around our truths: we can be active in the world and be honest about what must shift, when we must slow all the way down due to a flare up, a virus, or something else. 

 

This will be a co-created peer-supported space grounded in restoration and action.
