Description from event hosts:

Join the Longmore Institute’s Cafe Crip, a Zoom discussion group for building crip community on July 23 from 12:00-1:30, moderated by Sumi Colligan and Bianca Laureano. In this highly interactive program, you will have a chance to share your experiences across generations based on two short readings (see links to access below). Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve read either, neither, or both. The point is to meet new folks, connect with old friends, and engage in whatever way works for you.
