Join the filmmaker, disability advocates and experts from the Taishoff Center for a short preview of Intelligent Lives, a documentary exploring the importance placed on IQ and how self-advocates across the country are challenging the notions of intelligence and pushing for a more inclusive society.

During the post-film discussion, we’ll consider how professional development, portrayal of disability in the media and an increase in college options, including Syracuse’s InclusiveU program, can provide new opportunities for independence.

Events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged.
