ABOUT THE FILM, INTELLIGENT LIVES Intelligent Lives stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer, and Naomie – who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.
'Intelligent Lives' challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment and intimate relationships.
ABOUT CELEBRATING ABILITY
Celebrating Ability is a local group based out of Stoughton, WI with the mission to facilitate dialogue and conversation with the disability community.
By creating a conversation and dialogue, we can dispel common myths associated with the life path a person with disabilities has. We also want to increase the number of businesses that provide quality employment for those with disabilities.
By having a greater understanding and willingness to explore new paths, this will allow us to work together as a group, with the support of our community, to create unlimited options for individuals with disabilities.
Celebrating Ability received a grant allowing for a free screening of the film, Intelligent Lives by Dan Habib. Please join us in viewing the film and discussion afterwards on May 22nd, 2019!
Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.
Teena Browder, Cork ‘n Bottle
My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.
Tim Lightner, Owner, Two Men and a Truck
The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.
David Stark, President, Stark Company Realtors
The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has been an excellent resource for my small business.
