We present multidisciplinary performances by people with disabilities for broad audiences; organize performance workshops for community members with and without disabilities; and offer political education trainings for community based and educational organizations that share our commitment to social justice principles as a means of integrating analysis and action around disability, race, gender, and sexuality.


The Social Media and Community Engagement Specialist will work in collaboration with the Executive and Creative Director to promote Sins Invalid’s mission, programs, and events to the greater disability justice community.
