Lab’s Disability Inclusion Group to Sponsor October Showings of Documentary on Disabled Rights Movement

Disability rights activists protest, holding signs and an American flag the stars of which are rearranged into a wheelchair accessible symbol.

All Access, Berkeley Lab’s Disability Inclusion Employee Resource Group, is sponsoring multiple showings of the documentary “Lives Worth Living” as part of Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month in October.

“Lives Worth Living” traces the development of consciousness of these pioneers who realized that in order to change the world they needed to work together. Through demonstrations and inside legislative battles, the disability rights community secured equal civil rights for all people with disabilities. Thanks to their efforts, tens of millions of people’s lives have been changed.
