DSPS Con Un Racialized Lens: Clearing El Camino For Students With Disabilities
April 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us on the last Thursday of the month for our second webinar of the 2023 COLEGAS series:
“DSPS Con Un Racialized Lens: Clearing El Camino For Students With Disabilities” is a space and opportunity to discuss and debunk what disability is and stress the importance of accessibility where one identifies having a disability or not.
This webinar highlights the conversations about accessibility and disability rights so our students of color will not experience ableism. Ableism is a system that places value on people’s bodies and minds based on a societally constructed idea of normalcy, intelligence, and excellence. You do not have to be disabled to experience ableism. These constructed ideas are deeply rooted in anti-Blackness, eugenics, colonialism, and capitalism
Our panel of experts will feature the following: Dra. Gail Rulloda, DSPS Counselor at Solano College, Dra. Connie Gutierrez, DSPS Director at Rio Hondo College, Dra. Stormy Miller, Director of Student Services-Student Accessibility & Psychological Services at Marin College, Dr. Christopher Elquizabal, Dean of Student Accessibility and Wellness Services at Cerritos College and Dr. San Lu, Alternate Media Specialist at Napa Valley College.
We will have an opportunity for Q&A with our panelists.
