Location: Kirkland, WA (click for map)

Join Meaningful Movies in Kirkland on Friday August 20th for a showing of Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution followed by a discussion.

A ramshackle summer camp for young people with disabilities was the meeting place for idealistic young counselors. They fostered joy, acceptance and normality, transforming the lives of spunky teenagers into leaders who later ignited the Disability Justice Movement.

The winner of the 2020 Sundance Festival Audience Award, COVID-19 prevented its theatrical release; instead, it was picked up by Netflix in association with Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground.

Please join us for a showing of this powerful film and discussion, to be held in the parking lot of Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church. We ask that you register so we know how many people to expect and can notify you if the event is moved online due to weather, smoke or other issues.

If you prefer, you can watch the film on your own using the YouTube link below or through Netflix streaming (subscription required).
