“There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” Audre Lourde
When people don’t fit the dominant stereotype associated with their identity, barriers, already significant, increase. Hear about the stuggle in the panel "In Our Own Voices." Check out the break out sessions on special education services for English Language Learners, strategies for autistic trans people, how to challenge your child's classification and growing up disabled in the Caribbean-American Community. Join us as for overview and concrete support for individuals and families in addressing these and related issues.
