Free Virtual Conference: UMD Disability Summit, April 12-14

Access and Crisis: Disability and the Collapse of Everything

In the wake of the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act many are questioning how to continue to carry this energy forward. How can we foreground access in crisis? There are many skills that we need to carry into the "new normal" which must center intersectional applications of racial and disability justice. 

The 4th University of Maryland (UMD) Disability Summit will be held April 12th-14th, 2021 via Twitch, YouTube Livestream, and Zoom. The goal of the summit is to bring focus to and promote discussion of key current events and research impacting disability in society.

The University of Maryland Disability Summit was established in 2016 as a forum for professionals, educators, academics, service providers, allies, and advocates focusing on disability issues to dialogue and collaborate across types of disability and institutions. All submissions are peer-reviewed by a committee of students, faculty, and staff who represent a range of areas of expertise and experience with disability issues. 

Please register for the conference at go.umd.edu/2021registration and share your vision of inclusive and accessible resources, skills and actions.
