    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Learn about Oregon’s pioneering law to make access to psilocybin legal.

    Update: This program is now going to be held ONLINE ONLY.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    Oregon became the first state in the US to adopt law making access to psilocybin legal when voters approved Measure 109 in 2020. Psilocybin is the active ingredient in “magic mushrooms”. Federal law prohibits manufacture, possession, distribution of psilocybin, which is classified as a “Schedule I” drug. Learn about Oregon’s pioneering law; the promise psilocybin appears to offer to mitigate a variety of debilitating mental health challenges; how Oregon is preparing to implement this law starting in 2023. Who will be eligible to receive psilocybin therapy? Who will be able to provide such therapy? Where can the therapy take place? Does Oregon’s law provide protection from federal law enforcement? Are there other avenues to access psilocybin apart from M109: possible access under Right to Try laws.

    Kathryn Tucker is Special Counsel at Emerge Law Group, where she Co-Chairs the Psychedelic Practice Group. Tucker is a founding member of the Psychedelic Bar Association and serves as Liaison to the Psychedelic Lawyering Task Force within the American Bar Association.

    Watch this award-winning documentary on the disability rights movement. Ages 17+.

    This is an online program. The film will be livestreamed via Zoom. Register by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    HOW TO WATCH
    You can watch the livestream of the film from 5:30-7:30pm via Zoom or watch independently using your own Netflix account. ASL interpretation and Closed Captioning will be provided.

    ABOUT THE FILM
    Down the road from Woodstock, a revolution blossomed at a ramshackle summer camp for teenagers with disabilities, transforming their lives and igniting a landmark movement.

    In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened, a camp "for the handicapped" in the Catskills, exploded those confines. Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place with summertime sports, smoking and makeout sessions awaiting everyone, and campers who felt fulfilled as human beings. Their bonds endured as they migrated West to Berkeley, California - a promised land for a growing and diverse disability community - where friends from Camp Jened realized that disruption and unity might secure life-changing accessibility for millions. Co-directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Nicole Newnham and film mixer and former camper Jim LeBrecht, this joyous and exuberant documentary arrives the same year as the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, at a time when the country's largest minority group still battles daily for the freedom to exist.

    CRIP CAMP: A DISABILITY REVOLUTION is executive produced by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama; Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan; Oscar nominee Howard Gertler and Ray Lifchez, Jonathan Logan and Patty Quillin; LeBrecht, Newnham and Sara Bolder produce.
