Reminder: Tune in and watch Lives Worth Living, today, October 27, 2011 at 10pm

We posted about it a few weeks ago and today’s the day! Don’t miss out on watching this powerful and moving film that captures the historical perspective of the Disability Rights Movement in the United States. Lives Worth Living is sure to inspire you—as it showcases stories told by the movement’s pioneers, bold legislators, and other important advocates who demanded equal rights and were victorious in enacting the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)—landmark legislation that guarantees people with disabilities the equal access they deserve. As a result of these activists’ work and the ADA, important strides have been made in terms of getting more people with disabilities into the workplace and making public transportation systems and public spaces like hotels and retail stores more accessible so that people with disabilities are integrated in their communities. MS activists all over the country have helped make these sorts of vital changes happen.

This film is made possible through the Emmy® Award-winning PBS series, Independent Lens and is produced and directed by Eric Neudel. The documentary airs at 10pm eastern, so be sure to check your local tv listings.

Watch tonight and spread the word to your family, friends, and social networks!  We encourage you to share your thoughts on the film by posting comments on our blog!

I tuned in on PBS on October 27, 2011 at 10pm and it was not on my local PBS station. I was extremely disappointed. Can you all check to make sure that it is on before you send out an email to everyone? Thanks.
