Disability Justice at Brown

Advocating for the rights of people who identify as disabled at Brown University and beyond.


We at DJAB look beyond the superficial markers of diversity to a radical, disability justice transformation of the University.

We do not have a single issue movement because we do not have single issue lives.

Understanding disability and ableism is the work of every revolutionary, activist and organizer – of every human being.
