Lydia X. Z. Brown Speaking Topics

Why Disability Justice is an Intersectional Imperative for Our Futures and Our Freedom

Neurodivergent, crip, mad, and disabled people are already present in all of our communities. Yet we face the constant presence of pervasive ableism (disability prejudice and oppression), reinforced and intersecting with other forms of systemic injustice. Disabled people are working constantly to challenge the narratives that we do not belong in society, and to demand recognition and respect for disabled people's ways of knowing, being, learning, and relating. Disability justice analysis enables us to understand the necessary role of ableism in shaping social thought, research, and policy about race, class, gender, sexuality, and nation - and to challenge arbitrary notions of "normal" and "wellness" that undergird oppressive systems and influence our everyday lives. Disability Justice principles and practices offer radical and revolutionary ways of reimagining our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the communities where we live, work, and learn. Disability Justice goes beyond the frameworks of equity, inclusion, and diversity, and challenges us to incorporate multimodality, flexibility, and interdependence into our workplaces, research agendas, technologies, design, and communities.
