“All bodies are equal and essential. All bodies are whole. All bodies have strengths and needs that must be met. We are all powerful, not despite the complexities of our bodies, but because of them. We move together, with no body left behind. This is disability justice.”
Join Spoons, a disability justice discussion and action group! During monthly meetings (each an hour and fifteen minutes in length), students will gather to discuss current events impacting disabled communities, support one another in navigating campus life and consider strategies for challenging ableism on campus. The group will be convened by Multicultural Affairs staff but will be guided by the interests of participants, who may also decide to initiate advocacy projects or put on community programs in addition to the monthly dialogues.
Spoons meetings will welcome drop-in participation, though we are seeking to build the scheduling of the program around the availability of a handful of students who will intend to participate regularly (and who may be interested in taking on leadership roles as the year progresses).
Please complete this form by Sunday, October 10 at 11:59 p.m. to indicate your interest. The first Spoons meeting will take place in late October.
Spoons takes its name from Christine Miserrandino’s Spoon Theory.
