A black person with a cane wearing a red dress reaches their hand toward their face. In the background is a swirl of colorful flowers, leaves, and butterflies. They are bursting over a line drawing of a table and chair. The title of the book reads Crip Kinship: The Disability Justice and Art Activism of Sins Invalid
A picture of Middle Eastern femme wears bright pink lipstick. She smiles at the camera. She has short, whispy hair, a long silver feather earring, and is wearing a black shirt.

Early Praise for Crip Kinship 


“As a long-time admirer of Sins Invalid, I am grateful for Dr. Shayda Kafai’s Crip Kinship. Crip wisdom and disability justice are what we need right now. A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the origins of disability justice.”

—Alice Wong, editor of Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century

“Sins Invalid opened a portal that so many of the people who have taught me to live fully into the wholeness of my present have both held wide and come thru. This book invites a new generation through that portal of disability justice, to feel the powerful nature of us in our miraculous biodiversity and symbiosis, the love ethic in practice, the creative reclamation of our dignity, and the future that will unfold from our orgasmic yes. Shayda Kafai, in weaving this story, takes a place in the lineage of crip doulas who help us understand we are whole, and different, and perfect.”

—adrienne maree brown, author of Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good
