Beyond Service Provision and Disparate Outcomes: Disability Justice Informing Communities of Practice

On Feb. 28, 2017, Lydia X. Z. Brown (they/them), past president of TASH New England, chairperson of the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council and a board member of the Autism Women’s Network, presented on inequities in health services for disabled people with an intersectional focus on race, sexual orientation and gender identity. They also explored potential tools for change, from policy and advocacy actions (e.g., strengthening regulations, trainings, education and building coalitions) to community empowerment (e.g., collecting data and stories, creating safe spaces and providing trainings—especially by disabled people of color, for disabled people of color).
