Speaking at the Disability Incarcerated Symposium and Gathering

Here’s the presentation I gave this afternoon in Berkeley. The woman who spoke before me, Ella Callow, was from the National Center for Parents with Disabilities and their Families, and she spoke with brutal clarity about the history of “Indian Schools,” the shameful history of white settler colonialism in the US, and its relationship to the Prison Industrial Complex. That’s why I sound so broken up at the beginning of the talk. I’m going to write a proper blog post about all the incredible people I crossed paths with, but I just want to put this out there. It was well received. Important things happened here today! And yes, that’s a photo of me and Angela Davis.
