Why Disability Pride?

We want to live in an Aotearoa New Zealand where we as disabled people can be proud of ourselves and our country. We want to live in an inclusive, caring and safe place where we are visible and represented on our own terms, and where disability is considered a valuable part of diversity. 

Disability Pride Week at the University of Auckland is about valuing, celebrating and being proud of people with disabilities and what we have to offer.

During this panel discussion, you will have the opportunity to consider different ways disabled people are setting the agenda for a more inclusive society in one of the world’s most diverse cities, Auckland.

Panellists include:
• Dr Huhana Hickey – disability researcher and candidate for the Counties Manukau District Health Board
• Emma Cooper-Williams – youth disability activist and student in the Faculty of Arts
• Jason Boberg – disability rights and climate change activist; Founder and Creative Director at Activate.Film
• Amy Hogan – researcher and writer at the Cerebral Palsy Society and health system activist

They will talk about their work focused on making change at university level, local government and beyond.
The venue is wheelchair accessible and NZSL interpreters will be present.
Please let us know if you have any additional access needs: neera.jain@auckland.ac.nz.
