We’re using this year’s AAIDD media award winning film, “Hearts of Glass,” as a catalyst for conversation about employment and inclusion. Join us for a lively discussion with the filmmaker, characters from documentary and the executive director of Montana’s UCEDD, who served as an advisor during production. The film is about an ambitious small business that combines high-tech local food production and meaningful employment for people with disabilities. You can watch the trailer at You can watch the film at from Friday, 6/19 to Friday, 6/26.
