Dis/Representation is presenting “REAL: Reject Economic Economic Ableist Limits” on Wednesday, February 15, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. A panel of disability activists will speak to the economic barriers for persons with disabilities and offer personal experiences with employment obstacles. The discussion will be at Portland Community College’s Cascade Campus in Student Union Room 203, 705 N. Killingsworth Street.

The panel will participate in a question and answer session. Audience feedback will be welcomed concerning economic justice and policy issues for the REAL initiative. This is also an opportunity be become a REAL partner and join in the work for economic justice in the community. This event is free and open to the public.

REAL is supported by a grant that the Disability Art and Culture Project (DACP) received from the Kaiser Permanente Community Fund at Northwest Health Foundation. The panel includes Oregon Health Authority Office of Equity and Inclusion; Saara Hirsi, African Community Youth Organization; Kiel Moses, REAL / DACP Partner; and Michelle Sobel, LCSW.
