The meeting this month was an interactive session, making use of Jamboards to discuss concepts from Week 9 of the "Abolish Everything" curriculum. The readings for that week focus on disability justice, covering topics like the relationship of the medical industrial complex to anti-Blackness, colonialism, and ableism. The jamboards also allowed us share our preconceptions about disability and prior understanding of these topics in an open atmosphere that encouraged learning new things.
This group will be on break until the fall, as will the SURJ Baltimore monthly meetings and the Friends and Family group, as we update our leadership structure and plan for next legislative session. Look to the newsletter for updates about when these meetings will resume.
