Join Our Disability Roundtable Discussion Series
In honor of our 30th anniversary, we are starting a year-long series of monthly discussions designed to foster a greater understanding of disability issues.
Roundtables typically start with a short introduction of the topic followed by a discussion and sharing of ideas, information, opinions, questions, and differing viewpoints.
October 2011: Disability Language & Etiquette
Why do disability rights activists say never to use the word "handicapped"? Do you know the courtesy rules of blindness? The disability rights movement is sometimes criticized for being too "PC"- do you agree?
November 2011: The Disability Community Online
Connect to the wider disability community via blogs, vlogs, podcasts, listservs and online support groups. Share some of your favorite sites and learn how you can add your ideas to the online discussion.
December 2011: A Life Worth Living: Movie & Discussion
Join us and watch this new PBS film on the history of the disability rights movement and share your views.
January 2012: Speak Up! Skills of Advocacy
What does it take to be a good advocate? Is there one "right way" to do advocacy? We all believe in and care about something. What ways can you stand up for what you believe in?
For more details & the entire schedule, view the Roundtable tab on our website www.dnswm.org or contact Michele at 345-1516 x116.
