“The R-Word” Film Screening
WORDS MATTER. ATTITUDES MATTER. WE MATTER.
Filmmaker Amanda Lukoff grew up advocating for her sister Gabrielle, especially whenever she heard the word retard(ed). With The R-Word, she unravels the history and lasting effects of this word through the lens of the sibling experience, captivating animation sequences, and self-advocates speaking truth-to-power – ultimately making the case for why the conversation surrounding people with intellectual and developmental disabilities needs to change.
Join us on Tuesday, June 11th for a FREE screening of “The R-Word” followed by a discussion with Amanda Lukoff, filmmaker. Help us end use of the “R-Word”, but spreading the word about this impactful film and event.
