Sunday 1st September, 12.30 – 4.30pm

Venue: 128 Theobalds Road, Holborn, London,  WC1X 8TN

 Key speakers: Anne Rae: former UPIAS and current chair of the Greater

Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP), Colin Barnes: Professor of Disability Studies at Leeds Centre for Disability Studies

 As government and the private sector increasingly use a so-called ‘modern understanding of disability’ to redefine who is and who isn’t disabled it is more important than ever that we understand, defend and promote the social model of disability. This isn’t helped when the social model is not fully supported within our movement.

This event will be a chance to hear from a range of speakers and to discuss why the social model is still relevant today to our lives and our futures and to map out what we need to do to fight for it. The event will be live-streamed with the opportunity for people to participate in the discussion virtually.

We want everyone to be included in this -livestream link for the day  http://bambuser.com/channel/Bencavanna

  1. would love to be with you for this but can’t travel at the moment. We need to remind people who quote the Social model to us that it is important for them to remember Nothing about US without US. the social should give every disabled person a voice
