Join DSAOC at Chapman University’s “Community Voices” Screenings on May 12

Thursday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, Folio Theatre, 283 N. Cypress St. Orange CA 92866

DSAOC is excited to partner with Chapman University and their “Community Voices” program to bring the documentary, “Hold My Hand” to our community. 

 “Hold My Hand” is a film about a 20 year old woman named Eliza who has Down syndrome.  Eliza has been raised under the principle of inclusion during her life; in school and in the community.  Naturally, she wanted to follow what her peers and brothers were doing, which included college. 

In this short documentary you will hear Eliza in her own words as she tries to comprehend all that is going on around her, including rejection.

Join other families for a viewing of six films being shown in partnership with local organizations, one of which is DSAOC for “Hold My Hand”.  The screening starts at 7pm, doors open at 6:45 p.m.  This is a FREE community event.
