Join disability rights activist Judith Heumann for a Jefferson Memorial Lecture on the topic of “The Status Quo Loves To Say No”: Disability Rights and the Battle against Structures of Exclusion.
This lecture, delivered in a conversational format, will focus on aspects of Heumann’s journey that are most salient to the perils and possibilities of the present. Heumann sees in this moment a fragile and imperfect democracy, but one that is nonetheless worth investing in. She also sees deep structures of exclusion, vigorously defended but also vulnerable to political pressure and moral suasion. The discussion will also address why progress, while being meaningful, has still not been as significant as she believes it should be.
Please be advised that this event is currently being offered virtually and in person, though that is subject to change.
The in-person event will be held at Toll Room, Alumni House — UC Berkeley Campus. The event will also be available virtually via live stream on the lecture webpage. You can find directions to the Toll Room here.
