Faith Talks on Strengthening the Disability Rights Movement

Have you ever felt like a problem? Or had the experience of struggling to access resources that others obtain with little effort or worry?

If so, join us July 18, 2 p.m. ET, for a live recording of the Faith Talks podcast when we will discuss disability rights.

Host Jennifer R. Farmer will interview Chioma Oruh, Ph.D.,  and Dara Baldwin.

Register here.

DARA BALDWIN is an activist, scholar, and an author with over 20 years of experience in policy and social justice work. We’ll discuss Baldwin’s book “To Be a Problem: A Black Woman’s Survival in the Racist Disability Rights Movement”.

CHIOMA ORUH is a disabilities rights parent-advocate and a co-founder of Mothering Hands, a nonprofit organization working with government, business, and community partners to provide dynamic and enriching out-of-school opportunities for children and youth with disabilities in the District of Columbia. She has been on the Faith Talks podcast before and I know you’ll enjoy listening to her as well as Baldwin.

This conversation will be anchored around the 34th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which is on July 26. This landmark legislation impacts us all, whether we realize it or not.
