The Critical Disability Studies Students’ Association (CDSSA) is an organization based out of the Critical Disability Studies (CDS) graduate program at York University. The CDSSA exists to support disability researchers, artists, and activists. Our aim is to create spaces where disability researchers, artists, and activists can connect, collaborate, and share knowledge. This site is also a place where current and incoming CDIS students can learn about the students’ association, the CDS program, and accessing resources at York.
