Documentary Screening – Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution – Tuesday, October 27

Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution is a 2020 American documentary film. Join us for the screening of the film on zoom (link) Tuesday, October 27 from 6-8PM and discussion 8-8:30PM.  Crip Camp is a story about what happens when a group of teens with disabilities discovers a place where instead of facing stigma, they are treated as whole people. Their meeting eventually leads to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  The movie captions will be on during the screening and automatic real-time transcript will be provided for the discussion, if you need a live captioner please email at disabilityservices@macalester.edu.
