Join panelists Keri Gray, Wesley Hamilton, Reyma McCoy-McDeid and Dior Vargas for a conversation with Michelle D. Wilson on intersectionality and disability rights. The intersectionality of disability and race, color, age, national origin, sex, gender identity and expression and age are complex. Individuals with intersectional identities frequently experience multiple and heightened stigma, discrimination, isolation, lack of understanding and exclusion. Understanding the intersection of disability with other identities is essential to fully appreciate an individual’s complete identity and experiences. Effective Disability Rights advocacy also requires a broad understanding of the impact of intersectionality on disability rights.
