Description of a recent workshop:

Asserting a New Vision for the Revolutionary Body

We all have some relationship to what is considered the "normal" or the "non-normative" body, and it's likely a relationship laced with assumptions, judgement, and unacknowledged power and privilege. In this session, we will look at the dominant political framing of disability, examine its relationship to gender based oppression and racial oppression, and explore a counter-narrative where all bodies and communities are valued. The goal of this workshop is to support participants in their commitment to an intersectional political analysis which centralizes people of color and integrates disability oppression as a component of a justice based analysis of current conditions.

Send an email to with subject line: Booking, to inquire about how we can work together to support you and your community in dismantling ableism and other oppression.

Political Education Video Collaborations with Barnard Center for Research on Women:

Exploring disability justice framework, Patty Berne and Stacey Milbern discuss the need for a politicized understanding of ableism within a context of racism, classism, colonialism, and heteropatriarchy.
"When right-wing and fascist regimes are controlling the budget, the priorities get reflected very quickly on who is viable in that society and who is not." Patty Berne and Stacey Milbern discuss Trump's proposed Medicaid cuts, which would have disastrous effects for people with disabilities, cutting "right to the core of being able to live."
Patty Berne and Stacey Milbern present a social model of disability, explaining how universal design, adaptive devices, and meeting people's access needs can limit the social, economic, and physical barriers that render physical impairments disabling in an ableist society.
