WinVisible is a multi-racial grassroots organisation bringing together women with visible and invisible disabilities who are seeking asylum, refugee, immigrant and UK-born.
WinVisible women will talk about our history across the disability and women’s movements since the 1980s and what we’re doing now. We’ll host a discussion on how we are challenging disabled women’s poverty and lack of safety, and how we can win against multiple discrimination today.
