Disability Justice on Campus : Unpacking Ableism & Sanism | Direct Action @ Pitzer and Project LETS

Tuesday April 19th, 2022 | 4PM | REGISTER.

Project LETS “is a national grassroots organization and movement led by and for folks with lived experience of mental illness/madness, Disability, trauma, & neurodivergence. We specialize in building just, responsive, and transformative peer support collectives and community mental health care structures that do not depend on state-sanctioned systems that trap our folks in the medical/prison-industrial complex. We work for and with multiply marginalized folks in our communities to provide access, political education, & material resources that are needed to survive and thrive. We believe in a world without systems of oppression, where non-carceral responses to crises are the norm!”
