Netflix changed me #DisabilityAdvocate #Netflix #CripCamp
The most productive thing I have done all Quarantine is listen to about 17 people tell me I should watch this movie! Here are my thoughts!! ** Sidenote the language in this film is outdated but at the time was appropriate to use, I do not condone this language used in current life situations just let that be known while watching!
It has taken me almost 3 1/2 hours to watch an hour and a half long documentary, due to the overwhelming and empowering amount of emotion all across the spectrum while watching this. I Felt anger, sadness, happiness, pride, frustration, but most of all thankfulness and joy!
The documentary “Crip Camp” is a newly released Netflix documentary discussing the evolution of equality and rights for individuals with disabilities! I speak a lot about individuals with disabilities, movies you should watch, organizations you should donate to, books to read, and many other things, while I think those are all necessary and noble things to do, if you have ever questioned anything about an individual with a disability watch this documentary! This documentary shows individuals with disabilities fighting four things that are still not perfect today but a hell of a lot better thanks to the people that stood on the front lines and fought for it! I have the luxury to go to school and get A free appropriate education, I can walk into a building and know that it will have an accessible entrance, I can go back to school and get a degree in special education because of these individuals Who were like me and knew they deserved more. Working with individuals with special needs is something that I have always wanted to do and will continue to do for the rest of my life. This documentary didn’t change that, it made me thankful to be part of a community of people that fight for not only what we deserve, but still fight because we deserve more. Please please please. Watch this documentary while you are safe at home with the people you love! there’s so much more I could say about how much this documentary made me feel! As an educator and my ability to be able to go to school, To teach kids with differences not only to learn how to teach them to advocate for themselves and then they deserve as much as everyone else! and an individual special means I urge you to watch it and find out for yourself! Trust me it’s worth it!!!👏🏻👏🏻 #equal #americandisabilityact #freedom #ability #ablenotlabel #peoplearepeople #treatpeoplethewayyouwannabetreated #differentnotless #fightforwhatsright
