The Los Angeles Spoonie Collective is composed of disabled, neurodivergent, and chronically ill LGBTQIA+ community members within the Los Angeles area (Tongva land). We offer virtual and in-person workshops and panel discussions on the intersections of race, gender, and disability, disability justice, feminist theory, and more.

PANEL DISCUSSIONS & WORKSHOPS

Since 2016, we've presented interactive workshops and panel discussions at universities, colleges, community organizations, and businesses throughout the state.
 Our work brings a disability justice and kyriarchal (kyriarchy is a term that extends patriarchy to encompass and connect to other structures of oppression and privilege, such as racism, ableism, capitalism, etc.) feminist lens to social justice activism. Informed by our many years of community organizing, we offer nuanced perspectives of resilience and resistance from historically oppressed people.
Our collective members represent a wide breadth of disciplines and possess a range of applicable skills.
From library & information science and microbiology to diverse healing modalities and the arts, we’ve got the background to connect with your audience. Our experience includes public speaking, event planning and facilitation, teaching new skills and concepts, and workshop presentation.
From Disability Justice 101 to intersectional media analysis, our programming is designed to educate, enlighten, and entertain.
All workshops are offered in virtual and in-person formats and can be customized to the needs of your organization. Check out our offerings today!
