There is no cost for this training.
Training Description: A trauma-informed approach to supporting community members with disabilities centers accessibility and the voices of those being served. People with disabilities are systematically marginalized by the mainstream and despite laws and policies that purport to require accommodations, rarely do public services proactively develop universally accessible facilities or support.
This training will introduce attendees to ideas and tools that support trauma-informed, universal accessibility, and disability justice practices in the workplace.
