About Office of Disability Justice
About Our Office
The Office for Disability Justice (ODJ) provides education and guidance on disability-related issues. We work to actively address ableism at its roots, to bring change at the systemic level and create a more inclusive, welcoming campus culture and community for Sac State’s students, staff, faculty, and visitors.
Disability justice is a form of social justice, which addresses the idea that ableism, like racism and sexism and other ‘isms’, is systemic in nature. With thoughtful and intentional design, inclusion can be arranged from the beginning, lessening the need for retro-fitting needed access through accommodations.
The ODJ Team
The Office for Disability Justice, located in Sacramento Hall 267, is currently staffed by the Executive Director for Universal Access and Inclusion/ADA Coordinator for the campus, Jennifer Murchison; the Special Consultant for the ADA Transition Plan, Karenna Miller Pullen; and the Campus Lead Interpreter (currently vacant).
