Subject: DSROI 2022
I wanted to share the call for applications for this year's DSROI. It
would be greatly appreciated if you could share with your networks! We are
trying in particular to get more applications from persons with
disabilities this year so we kindly ask you to help us spread the word!
CREA has opened applications for its 9th Disability, Sexuality and Rights
Online Institute (DSROI) 2022!
CREA’s Disability, Sexuality, and Rights Online Institute (DSROI) is a six
weeks long online course that provides a study of theory and practice at
the intersections of disability, gender and sexuality, with a focus on
perspectives and experiences of persons with disabilities from the global
South. Started in 2010, the Institute is, in majority, led by activists,
community organizers and academics with disabilities from the global South.
This year, DSROI will take place from 7 October to 17 November 2022, online
through an accessible platform. It is intended for activists from all human
rights movements, practitioners, media and art specialists and donors.
We are reaching out to you to ask if you could share this call with your
networks. We at CREA are trying to reach out to people working in diverse
social movements. We are excited to engage with participants interested in
joining a space to learn and discuss in-depth, intersectional approaches to
disability. We are very much looking forward to welcoming disability rights
activists who want to engage with gender and sexuality in their work.
DSROI is a space to exchange ideas, and develop participants' ability to
work in inclusive and holistic ways that further human rights and social
justice. By engaging in mutual learning we aim to strategize ways to combat
ableism and deepen knowledge on mechanisms and frameworks for building more
inclusive and intersectional sexual rights advocacy.
To apply, use the online application form
https://dsroi.creaworld.org/apply/. Applications close on 5 August 2022.
You can find more information in the attachment (same information in two
formats PDF and Word) and also in our social media.

I am one disabled person who receives an extremely large number of emails
every day, and does not have an assistant or staff. This sometimes means
that it can take me a few days (or longer) to reply, especially if it is
not urgent. I am also unable to provide immediate crisis support as I am a
single person and not a hotline or organization. Thank you for your
patience and care as I move on crip time
If you are receiving this email outside of your typical working hours, I
also hope that you feel no pressure to read or respond until your schedule,
workload, and energy permit.
