Intersectional justice for the cultural community is an essential issue in our field and nation.

We are glad to engage in discussion around this topic with disability justice leaders in the field Patricia Berne (Sins Invalid); Alejandra Duque Cifuentes (Dance/NYC); Lane Harwell (The Ford Foundation); Jerron Herman (dancer and writer), and Eddie Torres (Grantmakers in the Arts).
