Protest Access Support
SDA is working to make protests against police brutality accessible to all, through livestreams with ASL interpreting and captioning.
We learn from disabled people of color who have taught that justice for disabled people must include justice from all oppressions. We must take an intersectional, collective approach. We seek to incorporate this perspective into all our work and include it in our Disability & Ableism trainings.
To join us in this work, provide feedback, or support us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SDA’s African-American members and staffperson Freddy Martin celebrated Juneteenth with guest speakers, time to get to know each other, and a discussion of how we can fight racism and oppression.
Police & Prisons
We act in solidarity with Black-led organizations to stop police from killing people, often people with mental health conditions and other disabilities. We support efforts to cut police funding and use that funding for social services. We support decarceration, which is even more critical in the time of COVID.
