Welcome to the website of the Disability Coalition Network (DCN).

The DCN is a community-building program developed by the Modern Language Association’s Committee on Disability Issues in the Profession (CDI).

The intention of the network is to promote disability issues as matters of wider social concern by bringing together participants representing a range of different institutions and career stages for pointed conversations about disability rights, advocacy, and justice. Participants in the network will be placed into small, collaborative groups that will meet with some regularity over Zoom or another similar platform.

The DCN is open to all MLA members. For a more detailed description of the program, click here.
