"Beyond Accommodations: An Introduction to Disability Studies," Dan Van Sant, staff advocate at Disability Rights Iowa, will talk about : ableism as a form of oppression, how ableism is deeply entrenched in our culture/language, and the idea that disability is more than accommodations -- it is a way of existing in the world, similar to other forms of diversity. Part of Disability Awareness Week.

American Sign Language interpreters and captioning will be available. Please contact event organizers with additional accommodation requests.
