by Isabelle Raghem
You may have heard of this project already, or maybe your school has even participated! Read about how one classroom in Abbotsford BC learned about equity and inclusion through collaboration, creativity, and art.

This first-ever episode of the Crip Times podcast is a discussion with hosts and artist, activist, and academic, Syrus Marcus Ware. Their conversation addresses social justice and abolition in the context of the global pandemic. They discuss the role of Deaf, Mad, and Disabled folks in activism – how these groups need to have their perspective heard for inclusive community building. They speak about intergenerational movement building, the role of children in activism, and the reimagination of our collective future.
