WE MADE IT!!!
Advocates in Action RI is currently producing, Best Judgment: Ladd School Lessons, which will be a documentary about Rhode Island's former state instituion for people who had a developmental disability. We recently had a fundraising campaign and we're thrilled to announce that is wasa huge SUCCESS! You can still view the campaign by CLICKING HERE.
You can also stay informed about our progress on our film website: LaddFilm.com, and by joining us on Facebook at www.facebok.com/laddfilm.
Thanks so much to everyone who contributed; we are sincerely grateful for your generosity.
You can still donate to "Best Judgment: Ladd School Lessons" by writing a check to our fiscal sponsor, the Down Syndrome Society of Rhode Island.
Please write "Best Judgment" on the memo line, and send it to:
Advocates in Action Rhode Island

Additional funds will go toward ensuring the highest technical quality for the finished film, and into outreach and distribution. We believe that "Best Judgment" is going to be an amazing film, and we plan to bring it, and the conversation that it inspires, to as wide an audience as possible.
THANK YOU ALL!!!
TOGETHER WE'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
