“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 twice-per-month 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, build friendship and community, 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 regular dialogues.

Spoons takes its name from Christine Miserrandino’s Spoon Theory.
