Reclaiming Justice: Disability, The Blind Spot in Climate Activism


Everybody possesses inherent prejudices that we carry in our daily lives. Ableism is present at all levels of society, often left unspoken, it is the essence of othering, stating what is desirable and not desirable. It is an ugly issue to address and is often left at the bottom of the pile when doing anti-oppression work in activism including anti-racism work, anti-sexism work etc. In reality this means that addressing ableism meaningfully forces us to direct the lens of attention onto ourselves to start to understand and unpick these patterns of behavior.
This film showing of a talk by Emily Obree, an experienced disabled activist, will explore the wider narratives surrounding disability, Emily will then speak live around something of what history has taught us, what has not worked and is going wrong in the climate movement as well as moving forward signposting part of a way to changing this together, to create a more inclusive, fair, just and sustainable society.
