The Disability Art and Culture Project is proud to announce receipt of a grant from the Kaiser Permanente Community Fund at Northwest Health Foundation, to support REAL: Reject Economic Ableist Limits.

Join our panel of disability activists to learn more about economic barriers for people with disabilities, and hear panelists’ personal experiences with employment obstacles. Q & A will follow. Audience feedback welcomed concerning economic justice, and policy issues for the REAL initiative. Become a REAL parnter! We’re recruiting more partners to work on economic justice for our community.
