NYC Screening of “Extraordinary People”
When: January 14, 2019
Where: AMC Loews Orpheum 7 – 1538 Third Avenue, East 86th Street New York, NY 10028
Please join us for a private screening of a new documentary and conversation around creating meaningful employment for adults with autism and disabilities.
The 30-minute film follows the stories of six individuals across the spectrum who tap into individual skills and strengths to find success working at a special purpose business called Extraordinary Ventures. “They’ve been told they can’t do it. Well, look at them now!”
While a job is a vital source of pride and self-esteem, opportunities for this population are scarce. It is incumbent on us all—individuals, families, communities, employers—to be more accepting and open to new ideas. The film explores ways to create businesses and meaningful employment around what people are good at, not what they can’t do.
An informative panel discussion with Luv Michael and Extraordinary Ventures will follow the film.
Please RSVP to Michele at Lumardi@verizon.net
