Disability Justice Collective Potluck #2!
***WHEN: Saturday, January 28, 2012 -- 1:00pm until 3:00pm
***EVENT: The Seattle Disability Justice Collective (DJC) warmly invites you to a Community Potluck on January 28th from 1-3pm.
Disabled and chronically ill folks, allies, friends, and family are all welcome! If you've never been to a DJC event before, this is your chance to connect with a growing group of people passionate about creating opportunities for social, educational, and political organizing around Disability Justice.
If you have been to our events in the past (and even if you haven't), this is your opportunity to find out how to get more involved!: From web design to event planning, from fundraising to outreach, see which committee is right for you, or how you can be part of the action, in any small or large way. We'd love to have you! Of course, if you're not able to get more involved right now, still come to eat, drink, and socialize! Bring a plate and eating utensils; we'll have paper ones if you forget!
*** LOCATION: Bethany United Church, 6230 Beacon Ave S. Olivette Room.
* FREE & ALL AGES. Kids welcome!
* THIS EVENT IS TO BE SCENT-FREE
That means not wearing any fragranced products like hair or skin products. If you arrive wearing scented products, you may be asked to wash off (if possible) or leave.
Please read this link for further information about what fragrance free means:
* ACCESS NEEDS
We will do our best to accommodate people's access needs. Bethany United is wheelchair accessible. It is on Metro line 36. The building also has free parking. Please bring the things you will need to make this event more accessible/comfortable for you. Let us know ASAP if you need ASL interpretation, or if there is any way we work with you to improve access for this event.
We need a couple of people who can plan to arrive 15min early to help set up the space (this will involve moving chairs and tables) and/or stay 15min after the event to help clean up. We would also like someone who does not have chemical allergies/sensitivities to be a "sniffer" at the door-- making sure folks who are coming in are not highly fragranced. Let us know if you'd like to volunteer for this event!
* CONTACT US
Please RSVP! Also let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
