July 23 @ 5 - Longmore Institute on Disability #NoBodyIsDisposable Film Series Online Event

The second part of the Longmore Institute on Disability #NoBodyIsDisposable Film Series, in partnership with Making Change Media, will take place this Thursday, July 23rd from 5-7pm PT / 8-10pm ET.

The event will feature a showing of Deej, followed by a panel discussion exploring the power of poetry, art, and other forms of creative resistance as well as the potential for that power to create lasting liberatory change—both cultural and political.

Panelists include artful activist and Deej's subject and co-producer David James Savarese; poet, blogger, and activist Lateef McLeod; and Assistant Professor of Disability Studies and disability justice activist Sara M. Acevedo (moderator).

Please join us as we celebrate the amazing people in SFUSD and our community who go above and beyond to support our students in special education.
