In November 2021, Disability Lead launched the Collab, community of practice to learn with and from one another and support a collective vision toward racial equity and disability justice. We worked hard to attract and support Collab members and our deepest hope was that practitioners of racial equity and disability justice would find ways to partner together and find fellowship as we fight for our collective liberation. We hoped that the Collab, ultimately, would be self-sustaining, as its members would drive these conversations, connections and events. Now, nearly a year and half later, we have made the tough decision to sunset the Collab.
