This fundraiser is to fund the 2nd installment of Decolonizing Academic Spaces.
All Panels run by Decolonizing Academic Spaces will have an ASL interpreter.
In this installment, we will be addressing Invisibility and Access for Students and Professors with disabilities. Panelists will share their experiences, concerns, and tools for how to make classrooms and departments more accessible to people with differing needs. We will be discussing the challenges of physical disabilities, invisible disabilities, mental illness, and learning disabilities as well as tools to provide better support to students, professors and colleagues with disabilities.
Funds generated will be used to cover the following costs:
A monetary gift for each speakers' participation
A monetary gift for the participation of an ASL interpreter
Items to ensure greater accessibility to audiences with differing needs
