Addressing Ableism in Your Built Environment (October 29, 2019)

As a follow up to our earlier Walking Towards Justice episode, Connecting and Allying with the Disability Rights Movement,  America Walks is excited to bring the series back for an episode that will explore the topic of ableism and how it informs our programs, places, and interactions, “Addressing Ableism in Your Built Environment.”  We invite you to join us on October 29, 2019 where we will will look at how individual, organizational, and institutional privilege intentionally and unintentionally creates barriers to the safe, accessible, and equitable spaces to walk and move that we all aspire to create. Join us as we explore the topic of ableism and hear from experts on proactive and immediate ways we can contribute to dismantling the pervasive daily exclusion that people with disabilities experience every day.
