Are you a person who experiences disability, disablement, chronic illness, madness, trauma, and/or addiction?
Do you belong to a Disability, Deaf, and/or Mad community?
Are you an ally working in solidarity with disabled, Deaf, and/or Mad people or communities?
Do you want to gather with other disability activists and allies to build the momentum of disability justice organizing in Hamilton?
