Past Events
Free Screening of "Deej: Inclusion Shouldn't be a Lottery":

7:00 PM, Morton Hall Room 20. The screening is free and open to the public. We will have a question and answer period following the movie. Information about the movie:

  "Abandoned by his birth parents and presumed incompetent, DJ Savarese (“Deej”) found not only a loving family but also a life in words, which he types on a text-to-voice synthesizer. As he makes his way through high school and dreams of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, society's obstacles to inclusion, and the sometimes paralyzing beauty of his own senses. In his advocacy on behalf of other nonspeaking autistics, he embraces filmmaking and poetry, and discovers what having a voice can truly mean." - from https://www.deejmovie.com/ Check out our event: https://www.deejmovie.com/screenings/2018/10/10/william-amp-mary
