Join disabled artist and activist Naomi Ortiz in conversation with Professor Julia Watts Belser, Georgetown undergraduate research assistants, and our international collaborators to celebrate the launch of our new digital archive that chronicles the wisdom and expertise of disabled activists, artists, and first responders working for climate justice.
