Disability and Social Structures
A public conference at Calvin College
Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 11:00AM to 5:00PM
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Disabilities can affect all aspects of life for those who have them, as well as for their families. But not all parts of our communities are set up to welcome and value individuals with disabilities. Churches, schools, media, community access—all of these sometimes contain structures that exclude, misconstrue, or devalue lives with disabilities, even if unintentionally. This two day conference aims to show how we can work to collectively restructure parts of our communities for the good of all.
