[CC] "Disability Justice work is .. new in the sense that we're building the shared political framework and shared language, so it's also a very exciting time." - Mia Mingus

Disability Justice deals with the oppression of disability, but at the same time also deals with other systems of oppression and injustice - it is a 'multi-issue politic.' It moves beyond rights- and equality-based approaches, beyond access and inclusion in unjust systems, instead working towards collective justice and liberation, towards transforming society as a whole.

This interview with Mia Mingus, one of the leading articulators of what Disability Justice is about, was done recently in Ottawa, where she gave two talks on 'Beyond Access: An Introduction to Disability Justice.'
