Welcome to Disability Justice Dreaming!
Our Board member and Secretary wrote this lovely piece about Disability Justice to raise awareness of the upcoming National Alliance of Melanin Disabled Advocates’ BIPOC Leadership Summit, “Our Presence Is Our Power.”
We are advertising this event, but we are not hosting it. Go to the events page to find more information.
ON HOLD UNTIL MARCH.
A monthly affinity space by and for Deaf and Disabled Queer and Trans people (LGBTQ2SIA+), sex workers and sex trafficking survivors, and Black, Indigenous, and Multiracial folks and People of Color (BIPOC), as well as those who fit under these umbrella categories.
Meets: First Monday of the Month, 5-6 p.m. PDT (GMT-7)
A Dreaming Session is a gentle, 60 minute transformative audience performance centering those most impacted by systems of oppression. They begin with an access check in and include time to reflect on/respond to various questions that support your own imaginings and keep us grounded in community needs. Dreaming Sessions are an opportunity to imagine a different, more liberated world. This requires creativity, imagination, and collective dreaming. The artist/facilitator is present to elicit these dreams and to reflect back the open presence of the community.
Check out our first Jamboard to find out how previous dreaming sessions have gone and to learn what questions we will reflect on next.
Auto-captions will be enabled; please message me with further access needs (the sooner the better).

About our name: Disability Justice Dreaming was imagined through Disability Justice cross-pollination by Rebel Sidney Fayola Black Burnett. It is very similar to Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha’s subtitle for “Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice.” Leah and I talked, and they expressed that this name is lovely for our organization. Love, gratitude, and recognition!
