This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

Disabled queer and trans people are especially targeted by carceral systems, and so much of the mainstream queer and disability activism frequently makes these systems worse. This presentation will talk about the relationships between carceral systems and bodies that are both disabled and queer, trans, and/or gender nonconforming.

We will also talk about how to distinguish between reforms that strengthen systems and those that destroy them. Katie Tastrom, MSW, Esq. is facilitating this session. Tastrom is an attorney, writer, activist, consultant, sex worker and artist. Tastrom focuses extensively on disability and making activism accessible for disabled people. She is also an attorney and member of the New York State Bar since 2016, and has worked in disability law and prioritizes issues related to disability.
