Eli Clare Events

In just over two weeks, HIVES has the honor and privilege of hosting disability activist and self-proclaimed rabble-rouser Eli Clare. Clare was recently named a Disability Futures Fellow by the Ford Foundation, and he’ll be here for a trio events “at” Michigan State University [note: all events are digital]. The events are described in detail below. Please make sure to RSVP if you plan to attend.
