We are proud to launch The Great Fight for Disability Rights, a mixed media DVD with film and curriculum designed for grade school educators.

 
 

When school children are given the opportunity to learn about this civil rights movement, understanding and acceptance of differences will naturally follow. Based on the acclaimed documentary "Lives Worth Living", this innovative, completely accessible mixed media DVD is an introduction to the history of the disability rights movement in the United States. There is a short film divided into two 15-minute parts plus a thoughtful, concise curriculum to assist educators in introducing this important civil rights fight to their students. Includes subtitles, descriptive audio track and spoken menus.

"As I finished viewing it today, I am clearly speechless (not a normal occurrence for me). It was an honor to view it and to understand in a very small way, the history that brings all of us to today. I truly hope that the youth of tomorrow understand as well...even a portion of what has occurred."

"Absolutely fabulous work that includes a curriculum for teachers. The GFDR personalizes the decades long struggle that people with disabilities endured to finally gain the civil rights they needed that guaranteed the right to live and work in the community. Every child needs to know how people with disabilities got to where they are now; this documentary is guaranteed to educate and spark a flame within all of us to better understand how powerful the disability rights movement truly is."

The project was supported and funded by Charlie Carr and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, and debuted in Boston at The State House on October 16th, 2013 as part of the Assistive Technologies event.
