Speak UP! Speaks out.

Self-advocates of "SpeakUp! Addison County" were trained and supported by MCTV to use film equipment, act, direct, and edit their film. Through their hard work they've created a 20 minute film about their advocacy group and members. It was produced by Tim Joy and Speak UP! Addison County.

 

A special thanks to our participants for opening their lives and paving the way.
