Following a shortened version of the Building Bridges Through Story event in March, due to covid restrictions, Manningham Uniting Church is delighted to be able to present three further opportunities to delve deeper into stories of ‘People with Disabilities (‘Ableism’), Muslim Women and First Nations People. Each event will be for a Saturday afternoon, with afternoon tea provided, free of charge.
The first being offered will be on Saturday 27 August from 2pm – 4:30pm giving an opportunity to listen and learn about Ableism.
Ableism characterises people as defined by their disability and assumes they are inferior to non-disabled people. Stereotypes reinforce discriminatory attitudes and behaviours towards people who are disabled limiting their options for action or change.
Hear the stories from Maddie Fogarty, Susan Arthur, and Matt Simpson. These are all stories of experiences of Ableism. Come listen, ask questions and delve deeper, the afternoon will be led by Mary Henley-Collopy.
