Four video clips of Judi Chamberlin being interviewed by Scott Cooper, each followed by a discussion of her vision.


You must pre-register thru Eventbrite.


People are welcome to come share their Judi stories, how you  have implemented Judi’s vision in your work, and what still needs to be done.


The goal is to empower ourselves with knowledge and community.


Leading the discussions will be Susan Fitzmaurice, Scott Cooper, and Susan Musante, while Ron Bass takes a much needed rest.

She has multiple disabilities and raises her adult son with different disabilities. She is the chair of Michigan Arts Access, an organization dedicated to arts for all.


Scott Cooper, videographer, founder of  It’s Our Story | uses the power of multimedia to uncover the power, passion, and pride associated with the disability experience. Since 2005, he has crossed the nation nine times, paying several visits to more than 48 states to document more than 1,600 video histories of the American disability fexperience via its “studio on wheels.”


Susan Musante, MS, LPCC, is the founding director of Soteria-Alaska, a model proven to be a highly effective alternative to hospitalization for newly diagnosed people. Susan is also the first full-time Executive Director of CHOICES, an alternative to conventional community mental health services directed and provided primarily by people who themselves have a “lived experience” with recovery. She is on the board of MindFreedom International.
