Everything you wanted to know about disability but were afraid to ask Part 3: Let’s talk about the Social Model of Disability: and why that matters!
This free webinar is being run by Independent Living Movement Ireland (ILMI) via Zoom on Wednesday 7th September from 3-4pm.
The Social Model of disability has driven much of the successes of the Global Disability Rights Movement. Developed by disabled people it informs many key policy approaches including the UNCRPD. But how much do we know about what the social model means, its importance to disabled people and its practical implications for policy development and investment in the inclusion of disabled people?
ILMI ONSIDE project Coordinator Peter Kearns will MC a panel discussion at the webinar, featuring disabled activists from Ireland and abroad. The panel will feature inputs from ILMI ONSIDE Disability Equality Coordinator Dr James Casey, disabled activist and author of “The War on Disabled People” Ellen Clifford, ILMI VOICE Community Development worker Paula Soraghan and ILMI Strategies for Change Coordinator Fiona Weldon.
