Disability Justice Approaches to Humanitarian Action

With a particular focus on global humanitarian action, this thought provoking session will feature Disability Justice approaches that recognizes historical trauma and centers on underserved communities. Join us as we pose critical questions that call for a collective reimagining of international development, foreign policy and humanitarian interventions. The session will be facilitated by Justice Shorter who serves as NDRN’s Disaster Protection Advisor and Valerie Novack who is currently a Portlight Fellow at the Center for American Progress. We welcome disaster/emergency management professionals worldwide, international development practitioners and anyone else with an interest in disability-centered humanitarian assistance.
