EBC is pleased to partner with Empowering People for Inclusive Communities (EPIC) to provide this three-hour training that provides individuals with and without disabilities the opportunity to explore topics such as disabilities, ableism, and inclusion. Participants will examine how ableism impacts their lives, work, and the world during this interactive training. Through an intersectional lens, participants will explore identity, the medical vs. social models of disability, the systemic oppression of people with disabilities, and how to begin to address ableism in our everyday lives and work.

This training works to address ableism and build inclusion across sectors in order to meet EPIC’s mission:

“Empowering People for Inclusive Communities (EPIC) prepares young people with disabilities to be actively engaged community leaders while combating ableism to equip the world for today’s disabled leaders.”

About the Trainer: Jeff Lafata-Hernandez, EPIC Founder & Executive Director
