|International Disability Rights Affirmation Conference|
Friday, November 10, 2023
Emily Wright is a writer, speaker, and mindfulness guru. They have been called “a rising voice in their generation.” Their work focuses on the psychology of discrimination and the power of the mind to enact great positive change, both on an individual and collective level. She points out a significant advocacy problem, that "We're talking about accessibility, but the people that we're trying to get access to, don't have access to tell us how we can help them get access."
Emily will present “Rebalancing the Mind” on Friday, November 10, at 8:30am SLT (Pacific time). Their Presentation takes us through their journey from Chaos to Calm after receiving multiple traumatic brain injuries. She is the creator of It’ll be Alwright ™ and her first book, The100 Days of Colour, will be out soon.
Please join us on Friday in the Sojourner Auditorium on Virtual Ability island to hear Emily’s presentation and ask her questions.
