Event announcement from the LEAD Center

People of color with disabilities face unique systemic challenges as a result of their intersecting identities. Centuries of exclusive practices in the United States, such as redlining and employment discrimination, have resulted in a society where people of color with disabilities, particularly Black, Indigenous, and Latinx communities, are at a particular disadvantage financially.

In this webinar, attendees will learn about the financial conditions of people of color who live at the intersection of race, ethnicity, and disability. Join us as we hear from subject-matter experts and professionals from the field about the financial impact of systemic inequality and intersectionality and how practitioners in the workforce development field are applying the lessons learned about race, disability, and poverty. Speakers include Dr. Andrea Urqueta Alfaro, Director of Research, from National Disability Institute, Nathan Turner, Black, Indigenous, and other people of color ABLE NRC Ambassador from the Lucas County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and Ben Feimer, Credit Building Manager, from Justine Petersen.
