Client/Consumer Movement

People with psychiatric and developmental disabilities experience stigma and discrimination every day.  To advocate for change, many peer-led advocacy groups advocated to improve the lives of people with disabilities.

The California Memorial Project seeks to preserve the history of the consumer/survivor movement by conducting research and interviewing disability rights activists about their personal experiences and stories.  By creating a documentary for future generations, the CMP furthers its mission to restore honor and dignity to people with psychiatric and developmental disabilities.
