Welcome, Belonging and Disability: coming together as Friends

Tuesday 23 April
18:30-20:30 (UK time)

Can we, as individuals, and as local, area and yearly meetings, shift the burden from disabled Friends? Can we find joy in doing things differently? What sometimes stops us doing so?

This is the third session and is for all of us: disabled and non-disabled Friends.

This short series builds on Esther Loukin’s Swarthmore lecture last year and invites us to work on our ‘creative loving imagination’ to find where each of us can improve welcome and belonging for disabled people. We will think about the two main forms of resistance to these sorts of changes, and what we might do when the resistance shows up in and around us.

This is the third session and is for all of us: disabled and non-disabled Friends. Together, we will consider how to deepen our practices of ‘messy imperfect access’. We hope that these sessions will enable disabled and non-disabled Friends to be less burdened, more joyful, and more adventurous in imagining, and creating, a future where everyone belongs and is welcome.
