We are at a critical time in Quebec with legislation being discussed, with care communities emerging, with scholars coming together and sharing their research, and differing perspectives on these emerging movements taking hold.

Join us as we discuss these important issues and learn from those working from critical perspectives within disability, Deaf, neurodiversity, mad, illness, crip, and other social justice movements.

Everyone is welcome! Please RSVP to help planning for food and accessibility. All details on the web site.
