About this Event

Grab some popcorn, curl up on the couch, and watch Crip Camp, an award-winning documentary on Netflix! Then, join us on Thursday, June 4 for a lively panel discussion with the documentary’s writers, directors, and producers about the movie, the American Disabilities Act, and how our Cleveland Jewish community is helping to continue this important work. 

Panelists include: 

  • Jim LeBrecht, featured in the film, director, writer, and producer
  • Sara Bolder, producer
  • Nicole Newnham, director and producer
  • Susan R. Borison (moderator) 

Plus, JFSA’s Horvitz YouthAbility program will share a local perspective on how the disability rights movement has affected their lives and how they continue to be advocates in our community.

CRIP CAMP follows the lives of teens with disabilities who attended summer camp in the early 1970s and their subsequent advocacy work for the disability rights movement. Watch the documentary now.

Closed Captioning will be provided during this event. An ASL interpreter is available upon request. To request accommodations, please contact Joyce Lisiewski at 216-593-2845 or jlisiewski@jcfcleve.org by Monday, June 1.
