“Beyond Allyship: Disability Rights and Public Service” is a discussion between disability rights advocate Judith Heumann and professor Fernando Torres-Gil of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs that was presented as part of the Regents Lecture series at UCLA on Feb. 8, 2021.
The conversation focused on how individuals and organizations can move beyond disability allyship to engage in coalition building and adopt an intersectional approach to policy making. This session was open to student leaders pursuing careers in public service who are interested in examining the intersections of disability, public service, and advocacy. Participants were invited to submit questions to help guide the conversation.
The event had CART captioning, ASL interpretation, and was recorded.
