A film and a festival


Movies with a Mission at the La Crosse Public Library: "Celebrate heritage, identity and awareness months while gaining a greater understanding of issues that affect our community! Disability Action Network (DAN) will join us to share their mission and screen the documentary, "Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution," featuring a ground-breaking summer camp for teens with disabilities that proves so inspiring that its alumni join the radical disability rights movement to advocate for historic legislation changes."

And, on Saturday, July 22, plant to attend the Disability Pride Fest from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Copeland Park.

"In 2023, DAN will host our 2nd annual Disability Pride Fest to promote inclusion and highlight the value of people with disabilities to our community. Lots of people in our community are impacted by accessibility barriers and isolation. At Disability Pride Fest we will actively break down those barriers through socialization presentations, performances, a community art project, sports, children’s activities, and resource booths. Put simply, the event will celebrate disability culture.

"Disability Pride Fest will happen on Saturday, July 22nd. There will be music, food, art, activities, fun, and resources. All activities will be as accessible as possible including ASL interpreting, accessible restrooms, plain language information, and a sensory break area."
