Life-Threatening Public Policy An Eight-Part Lecture/Discussion Series Zoom Platform via Ontario

February 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

An Eight Part Lecture Series Public policy that has threatened the lives of people with physical and mental impairments and
other devalued people is not a new, or even a modern concept. However, the legitimizing of methods and policies that result in the deaths of people in today’s world is unprecedented.
Life-Threatening Public Policy is an eight part lecture series designed to explore contemporary examples of deathmaking through public policy, to describe them as a pattern contributing to the vulnerability of people with impairments, and to call participants to careful reflection and to positive action. This is a course designed for anyone interested in defending the lives of people with impairments, especially for those willing to consider that ours is a society which is prepared to do away with those it devalues.
The participant in this series will be invited to:
• Appreciate the vulnerability of impaired and devalued people to having their lives abbreviated.
• Consider the connections among all forms of life-threatening public policy.
• Consider examples of means to oppose life-threatening public policies.
