Book Launch – More than a Left Foot

More than a left foot – Resistance Books

More Than A Left Foot by Bob Williams-Findlay is being published by Resistance Books and should be essential reading for all disability activists.

Bob traces his experience of life, discrimination and political awakening both as an individual and as part of a specific social group. This journey links disability politics to a wider politics within students, disabled peoples, trade union and labour movements. The book places the struggles for the emancipation of disabled people within the context of Bob’s life journey.

There is an opportunity to virtually attend this book launch on Tuesday 23 June, 19:00 (BST) by following the links below. 

Speakers at the event will include Bob Williams-Findlay, Sandra Daniels and Paul Mackney.
