We believe in intersectional work and centering people of color with disabilities in leadership roles within the disability movement. As we grow as a coalition, CNLD hopes to continue to center marginalized populations in the leadership work we do and showcase. The Disabled Latinx Movement: Cultivating Leadership, Creating Agents of Change Conference seeks to bring together leaders and activists in the Disabled/Deaf/Blind and/or Latinx movements as well as identify and build the capacity of our future leadership.
CNLD & the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities invite proposal submissions from individuals, academics, practitioners, activists, advocates, community members, self-advocates and more (with preference given to those who identify as Disabled Latinx). You can submit proposals to present individually, via teleconferencing and/or in groups (of no more than four individuals). Through submissions we hope to uplift the experiences of individuals who identify as Disabled, Deaf, and/or Blind and Latinx (Chicanx, Hispanic, Latinx, Mexican, Mestiza, etc.), and those representing other marginalized identities such as undocumented, LGBTQIA, elder, Afro-Latinx, and neurodiverse.
Topics for submission may include, but are not limited to: Explaining your leadership role in the work you do in the Disabled Latinx community. Holding a leadership workshop for future Disabled Latinx leaders.
