ADA 25 Advancing Leadership is excited to invite you to join us for our Disability Power Series featuring guest speakers for virtual conversations and community building around disability leadership.

Join us for the panel discussion, Crip Camp: Building Power to Create Culture Change featuring directors, James Lebrecht and Nicole Newnham, Chief Inclusion Consultant and Impact Producer Andraéa LaVant, and artist and social justice advocate, Reveca Torres. 

Crip Camp, released on Netflix earlier this year, covers the story of a groundbreaking summer camp that galvanizes a group of teens with disabilities to help build a movement, forging a new path toward greater equality. Panelists will explore how building power, like was done at the summer camp or through art, propels a movement and individuals to make a culture change to build a more equitable and inclusive society. 

Once you register, you will receive a calendar invitation from Advancing Leadership staff with the Zoom video and call-in information. If possible, we recommend you view Crip Camp ahead of the panel.
