The LGBTQ+ Equity Center and the Memorial Chapel are collaborating to hold an outdoor space for queer spiritual practice and community. This space welcomes all of UMD's LGBTQ+ and allied communities (undergrads, grad students, staff, and faculty), it's not exclusive to any particular religious/spiritual tradition, and it's open to nontheist/agnostic/humanistic perspectives. We'll be discussing spiritual/personal affirmations and practices that some might name as spiritual, wellness, or personal development.

Euro-western tradition has long habituated a division between the body and the mind, at best confining the body to the phenomenological background, at worst dismissing the body as a hindrance to truth. Speech is privileged while the body that speaks is erased. Yet racism and other isms obtain through bodily habit, manifesting as rhetorical, spatial, temporal, affective, and embodied phenomena. As a result of this deliberate contradiction, racism becomes largely known as prejudicial language over the structural conditions that confer its rhetorical power.

Presentations that are accessible to people with disabilities are also inclusive to many more audiences. This presentation will discuss ways to make your meetings and events accessible to everyone by providing all attendees with the tools they need to plan an accessible event.
