Join us on Tuesday, May 14th, at 7pm for a screening of Intelligent Lives, a film that follows three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities, as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. The film unpacks the ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.

INTELLIGENT LIVES challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment, and intimate relationships.

Special thanks to the Elmhurst Public Library for co-sponsoring this screening in their Large Meeting Room
