How do you support your foreign-born students particularly during times of crisis? Immigrant and refugee students of all ages are being disproportionately affected during the combined crises of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic recession and heightened immigration restrictions. Join the Immigrant Learning Center’s Public Education Institute and Re-imagining Migration for a free online workshop, 2020 Immigrant Student Success: Strategies and Tools for K-12 and Adult Educators, on July 8 and 9, 12:00 to 3:00 PM EDT, three hours each day.

Algorithmic decision-making, AI, and disability justice with Lydia X. Z. Brown @ Online/Virtual
Jul 8 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Searching on Google. Shopping on Amazon. Reading posts on social media. Scrolling through news articles. Whether we realize it or not, our lives are dramatically shaped and impacted by algorithms and A.I. (artificial intelligence) for much of our day-to-day lives. But algorithms also are used in many more hidden aspects of life too: applying for jobs, handling eligibility for government benefits, making pretrial release decisions, and more.

In this webinar, our presenter will talk about the various ways that A.I. and algorithmic decision-making discriminate against people with disabilities and reinforce ableism. They’ll also discuss the difference between “fairness” and “justice,” and why it’s important for us to talk about disability justice and algorithmic justice rather than algorithmic fairness or disability rights.

About the Presenter: Lydia X.Z. Brown is a disability justice advocate, organizer, educator, attorney, strategist, and writer whose work has largely focused on interpersonal and state violence against multiply-marginalized disabled people living at the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, nation, and language. They are policy counsel for the privacy and data project at the Center for Democracy and Technology, adjunct lecturer in disability studies for Georgetown University’s English Department, and policy and advocacy associate at the Autistic Women and Nonbinary Network. They are also founder and director of the Fund for Community Reparations for Autistic People of Color’s Interdependence, Survival, and Empowerment.
