Lives Worth Living

There is a moving and uplifting PBS documentary Lives Worth Living which chronicles the events leading to the enactment of the Americans With Disabilities Act. in 1990.  Here is a 14 minute excerpt, focusing on the politics, personalities and final outcomes.  The full DVD is expensive, but may be available at your local library.

24 years on, Nova Scotia badly needs to step up with similar Civil Rights legislation, and indeed has promised to do so.
