The ASUW Student Disability Commission and the D Center at the University of Washington presents "Broken Bodies, Brainwash Ph.Ds. PBP: Police Brutality Profiling".

This workshop will focus on how we learn about police brutality against people with disabilities from the streets to organizations to the media to higher education and what it looks like from these avenues and who is speaking and who is not speaking. Activist and recent graduate student Gioioa von Disterlo and disabled activist/cultural worker, Leroy Moore team up to present their work on the issue of police brutality against people with disabilities and how we learn about it in and outside of academic walls, in the community and in non-profit organizations. They will be looking through these multi lenses to get back to the individual and the perception of disability in our community all the way up to higher education including media and in non-profit industrial complex. The workshop will be a mixture of multi-media, critical thinking, poetry, song and exercises.

Friday May 10th  from TBA.
