UWindsor audiences will have the opportunity to engage with Australia’s disability discrimination commissioner during two free public appearances on campus Monday, January 15.
Alastair McEwin, a member of the deaf community, will deliver his lecture “Disability Rights in Australia: Progress over the last 25 years?” at noon in the Farmer Conference Room, Ron W. Ianni Faculty of Law Building. The event will feature a lunch and a question-and-answer session.
McEwin will also participate in a panel discussion entitled “Global Struggles: Working towards Realizing Disability Rights in Canada, Australia and the US,” alongside:
- Law professor Laverne Jacobs, founding director of the Law, Disability, and Social Change Project;
- Mark Cody, legal director of the Michigan Protection and Advocacy Service; and
- Arlene Dodge, staff lawyer at Legal Assistance of Windsor and a member of Walpole Island First Nation.
This event will run 5 to 7 p.m. in the CAW Student Centre’s second-floor boardroom.
To attend either event, RSVP online by January 11.
