We apply Disability Justice principles to public health activities, at Brown and across Rhode Island, in order to address long standing intersectional issues facing our community. On campus, we spark needed conversations that go beyond access, while cementing disability as a core component of diversity, equity, and inclusion work. Additionally, we foster community between Disabled students, staff, and faculty members, as well as supportive allies. We draw on the history of Disability Justice and follow in the footsteps of Disabled women and queer folks of color, who recognized that ableism does not function alone, but in conjunction with other systems of oppression.
