Disability and Social Structures

A public conference at Calvin College


Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 11:00AM to 5:00PM


Calvin College
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.
