The Changing Face of Disability in America Film Screening – Access for All: A Public Education Series on Accessibility and Disability Rights
July 14, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join disability experts in our community to view this important film about the state of disability in America, followed by a discussion of how these issues are currently addressed in our own city and where we should go from here.
Panelists: PJ Moynihan, filmmaker; Patsy Grainger, Senior Citizens, Inc.; Betsy Powers, LPC; Michael A. Schwartz, New South Law, LLC; other speakers TBD
The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace will hold seven public programs this summer on disability-related topics— ranging from film screenings, discussion panels and walking tours. All events are free and open to the public. Join us in sparking conversation about understanding accessibility, disability, and inclusion.
This education series was made possible through the Birthplace’s Access for All Grant, awarded by the Institute of Library and Museum Services. The multipronged project includes physical accessibility upgrades to the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, a new accessibility focused Girl Scout program offered at the Birthplace, accessibility training workshops, and a public program series.
“We are excited to bring these important events to the Savannah community,” says Shannon Browning-Mullis, the Birthplace’s executive director. “We’ve learned so much during the Access for All project and look forward to continuing the conversation with local citizens and disability rights advocates.”
