Rushton Social Justice Lecture 2016
Continuing the rebellious spirit of forgotten hero Edward Rushton, the annual Social Justice Lecture aims to instigate change and eradicate the barriers many disabled people still face.
This year’s lecture will focus on investigating the barriers that still exist within disabled peoples’ lives and what needs to be done by decision makers to radically change the current position.

The Rushton Social Justice Lecture follows on from celebrations of Rushton’s life at DaDaFest International 2014, which included a special display at the Museum of Liverpool.
