The Iowa Department of Human Rights and the Center for Disabilities and Development, Iowa’s University Center for Excellence on Disabilities, in partnership with the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council and Disability Rights Iowa are hosting the screening of “Bottom Dollars, a Rooted in Rights Original Documentary” in eight cities around Iowa. This award winning film calls for the phase out of the sub-minimum wages and sheltered workshops, and offers solutions for fair wages and inclusive employment. The documentary features personal stories and expert interviews with advocates that have been working to improve the employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
Following the film, local panelists will share their perspectives related to subminimum wage employment and alternatives to segregated, subminimum employment in Iowa.
Advocates, families, policy makers, disability service providers, and the general public are encouraged to attend. This showing is free! To help us plan accordingly RSVPs are strongly encouraged via the form below.
