Tuesday, June 8, 2021 4 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. ET

Join us for a discussion with Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht, directors of Crip Camp.

About the film: In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened, a ramshackle camp “for the handicapped” (a term no longer used) in the Catskills, exploded those confines. Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place with summertime sports, smoking and make-out sessions awaiting everyone, and campers experienced liberation and full inclusion as human beings. Their bonds endured as many migrated West to Berkeley, California — a hotbed of progressive activism where friends from Camp Jened realized that disruption, civil disobedience, and political participation could change the future for millions. ASL interpretation and live transcription will be provided for this event.

Balancing the experience of graduate school, personal and family relationships, and everyday demands can feel overwhelming. It can be even more challenging when you have a disability, whether seen or unseen. This weekly group is a space for graduate students with disabilities to connect with their peers, share their experiences, learn from other students going through similar circumstances, and practice healthy coping skills. This group will encompass a wide range of topics, some of which might include academics, stress management, relationships, career challenges, cultural concerns, and coping with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
