Why we celebrate Disability History Month


"Disability History Month provides a platform for disabled people to share the history of the struggle for equality and human rights/ it empowers them to “become agents of change within their communities”. It is important to recognise how the leaders of the disabled peoples’ movement have changed the conversation on disability from a personal burden to a global human rights issue.

I am really excited to let you know that the KCLSU Disabled Students Network have collaborated with KCLSU and King’s to present an exciting programme of events to mark KCLSU DHM 2019 These include our first Disabled Network Open Meeting - where you can meet myself, the Disabled Network team and what projects and campaigns we have planned for the year and a workshop delivered by King’s Careers - where you can learn some practical tips on how to find work experience and receive advice on when, if and how to talk with employers about disability! Find out the rest of the interesting events below. We look forward to celebrating with you!
