This article introduces a new tool that emerged from Inclusive Arts Vermont’s participation in the National Guild’s 2020-2021 Rootwork Learning Cohort. The Cohort supported community arts educators in studying, developing, and documenting practices that are grounded in, and supportive of, the many varied lived experiences of our communities and responsive to the movements of our time. The tool provides concrete ways for community arts educators to make their practice more accessible for disabled people in ways that align with antidotes to white supremacy culture.
