Venue: Online

Book your place

This panel will bring together activists and academics to discuss the importance of COVID-19 to disability justice and intersectional liberation. As a social phenomenon, the COVID-19 pandemic laid bare a range of systemic injustices in society, and as a disease, impacted marginalized people the most. However, since the near-universal end to precautions in 2022, these inequalities have fallen out of the national conversation. This panel will highlight the work of those who foreground the ongoing threat of COVID, particularly to marginalized groups, in their research and activism.
