Disability Pride Madison

April 10 @ 3:15 pm - 4:30 pm

Disability Pride Madison is a grassroots organization that has produced the Disability Pride Festival for the last eight years. Performances at the festival all include at least one performer with a disability. Board members from DPM will cover Disability Justice, local disability politics and advocacy, intersectional identities, the importance of having community, economics of survival for a small, low-income grassroots group, how we are building networks of performers, makers and activists with disabilities and how activists and academics can inspire each other’s work, what we have learned about organizing groups of people across abilities and our plans for the future. We will also share how our work has shifted in light of the COVID19 pandemic.
