Sundance Jury Walks Out of ‘Magazine Dreams’ Premiere Over Failure to Provide Captioning

"While the device was eventually repaired and the jury made plans to see the film at another time, the incident speaks to a larger debate about accessibility in the film festival community. In private discussions during the weeks leading up to the festival, jurors had expressed concerns about the festival’s accessibility and had asked for all films to feature open captions shown on the screen."

“The US independent cinema movement began as a way to make film accessible to everyone, not just those with the most privileges among us,” the jurors said in a statement.

The Story of Access Living

The disability movement is really the story of many movements for the rights and freedom of people with disabilities. The work of Access Living was born from the work of the independent living movement, which co-exists with movements such as the self-advocacy movement, the Autistic movement, and others.

In 1972, the independent living movement, with roots in the civil rights and social change movements, began taking shape with the creation of the country's first center for independent living, the Berkeley Center for Independent Living. As other centers for independent living sprang up across the country, a new philosophy emerged -- an "independent living philosophy" that asserts that people with disabilities are their own best advocates and able to make the necessary decisions in order to live, work and socialize in the community. This was a significant shift away from the prevailing "medical model" which viewed people with disabilities as individuals who needed to be cared for. The community of people with disabilities entered the dawn of a new era.

In 1980, Access Living brought the independent living movement to Illinois when it was founded as part of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago's quest to address the growing need for affordable, accessible housing for its patients ready to leave the RIC. Access Living remained a department within the RIC until 1984, when it became an independent non-profit group.

In the early 1980's society largely ignored people with disabilities. They were invisible: disrespected and viewed as little more than recipients of charity. Few options, if any, existed for to people with disabilities to engage in the community. Disabled people were segregated in housing, in schools, in cultural and sports arenas, in restaurants, shopping and entertainment. There was limited access to quality medical care, no accessible public transportation, no curb cuts, and communications access was rarely available. Employment opportunities were less than minimal. With early support from the RIC, Access Living’s committed staff took on the challenge of removing the obstacles that stood in the way of full equality for people with disabilities.

Have you heard of Centers for Independent Living? They help people live how they want: In the community, with whatever supports they need. On the latest episode of the Disability Garrison podcast, Holly and Michael talk with Karen Tamley. She's the CEO of Access Living in Chicago. She discusses the services provided by these centers. Karen also explains the philosophy of Independent Living. Finally, she gives ideas of how we can help support these community-based organizations.

From Access Living: Are you a person with a disability who has had to call an ambulance to go to the hospital in Chicago? A common problem for many Chicagoans with mobility devices is that if you have to go to the hospital in an ambulance, the emergency personnel won't take your mobility device with you. However, we know that wheelchairs are freedom devices for people with disabilities, and it only makes a health emergency worse if you are wondering where your chair has gone.
Today Governor JB Pritzker signed HB 2775 into law! On behalf of the Illinois Coalition for Fair Housing, thank you for your unwavering support for the Illinois Source of Income Campaign. This is a huge win for housing advocates, but even more so for renters who have experienced unfair housing treatment and housing discrimination based on their source of income.

For those who don't know, Chicago Housing Initiative is a coalition. Meaning, we are made up of several different housing organizations across Chicago. One of the nine organizations we are comprised of that we want to highlight is Access Living!

Access Living works really hard to make the public aware of barriers people with disabilities face while also working hard to minimize/eliminate those barriers specifically around housing needs. Their mission is to, "Ignite disability power and pride, provide critical services, and break down systemic barriers to create a stronger, more inclusive society." They offer services include: home and community based programs, housing services, youth programs, and offer consulting and training for other businesses and nonprofits.
