Filming - Washington, DC
After the Memorial Day holiday, we had an action-packed day of filming sit-down interviews at Special Olympics Headquarters in Washington, DC with some of the most important thought leaders in the r-word movement. We had the honor of sitting down with Special Olympics Chairman Tim Shriver, self-advocates Jill Eglé, John Franklin Stephens and David Egan, and Dr. Julia Wilkins and Brandy Johanson Sebera, who co-authored the study The Uses and Implications of the Term "Retarded" on YouTube. The conversations we had with these exceptional individuals were compelling, insightful, thought-provoking and a lot of fun (we think Frank and David deserve their own talk show) - a truly unforgettable experience!
