Piss on Pity: The Story of ADAPT

Piss on Pity explores the disability-rights movement’s radical wing, a group called ADAPT, which has helped shape this country’s disability-rights agenda since 1983. With unprecedented four years of access, Piss on Pity: The story of ADAPT will bring you an inside look at the group that stormed Congress to pass the ADA, and again this year to defeat Medicaid-killing legislation. ADAPT has fought for the human and civil rights of people with disabilities for 34 years. The struggle continues. Watch the trailer and help fund the completion of this project by donating online.
