Join PublicSource and the Pittsburgh Center for Autistic Advocacy for an advanced screening of a breakthrough film followed by a panel discussion with DJ Savarese and area autism advocates:
DJ Savarese (“Deej”) is a gifted, young writer and advocate for nonspeaking autistics. Once a profoundly disabled foster kid on a fast track to nowhere, DJ dreams of college and insists on standing up for his peers: people who are dismissed as incompetent because they have neurological differences. Will DJ find freedom for himself and others?
“Deej is the best film on autism I’ve ever seen. So much of DJ’s experience resonates deeply with me.”
Brent White, Transition Director, Ala Costa Centers, Berkeley, CA
“It’s hard to go first. But DEEJ makes it clear — DJ’s going to bring us all with him.”
Julia Bascomb, Executive Director, Autistic Self Advocacy Network
