In memory of disability activist Judy Heumann, Disability Studies is hosting a screening of "Crip Camp."
Disability justice activist Judy Heumann died March 4 in Washington, D.C. at the age of 75. A quadriplegic since childhood, Heumann began her career in activism waging a one-woman battle to be allowed to work as a teacher when discrimination against disabled people barred that. She went on to become an official in the Clinton administration and a special adviser in the Obama State Department. She was also featured in the Oscar-nominated 2020 documentary "Crip Camp."
