The movement for disability justice in Quebec emerged in the 1970s, in the wake of mobilizations of other groups that experienced oppression and discrimination. As a youth-led movement, it gained momentum and made significant progress in the 80s and 90s. Since the 2000s, however, it lost some of this power, weakened both by the neoliberal policies of successive governments and by the decline of activism among disabled communities.
CONTINUONS À ALLER PLUS LOIN ENSEMBLE! depicts the interventions of fifteen activists and workers from across generations. Reflecting on the history of disability justice activism, this documentary also examines the pressing issues and perspectives for the movement today.
