Adequate time for discussion will be properly allotted. All Division Chairs should plan to participate in this session or designate a proxy from their division if unable to attend.

At the Annual Business Meeting, the proposed resolutions will be presented (including any modifications or revisions) by Vice-President William D. Cabin as a package for approval for action by the attending membership. The membership will vote on proposed resolutions that were discussed and revised on the first day of the meeting. If objections from the floor are raised to any specific resolution at the SSSP Business Meeting, that resolution can, by majority vote of those present, be separated from the package, and voted on separately. Those present can either vote to support the resolution as proposed, make changes to the resolution before voting, even without the approval of the originator(s), or decide to table the resolution for further discussion at the subsequent year’s annual meeting.

Session 042: FREE FILM SCREENING: America; I Too
Room: East End Suite

Sponsor: Program Committee

Organizer, Presider &

Discussant: Anike L. Tourse, New Day Films

Description:  This session will feature a screening of the 20-minute short educational film "America; I Too" and will be followed by a Q&A discussion session with writer and director Anike Tourse. ”America; I Too” is both a cultural and entertainment vehicle in addition to being an educational resource. The short film follows the stories of three arrested and detained undocumented immigrants who must navigate the Immigration Courts system to fight impending deportation. ”America; I Too”, stars Academy Award nominee Barkhad Abdi and features the music of Grammy winners Quetzal. Closed captioning is available in Spanish, Korean, simple Chinese, Haitian-Creole, Vietnamese, and Brazilian-Portuguese with audio description in Spanish and English. The bilingual short film uses embedded education legal information to inform undocumented audiences on how to prepare a plan of action in the event of arrest or incarceration and suggests ways to protect one’s human and civil rights. The film and its supplemental study guide also informs audiences interested in learning more about these overlooked groups on how to better serve those who have been traditionally marginalized. The film’s educational approach is a collaborative effort between artists, activist and community members. This approach allows underrepresented groups in front of and behind the camera to take control of their own narrative and tell their own stories through their languages in a more authentic way. There are many communication theories that speak to humans being natural storytellers but storytelling also has the impact to change people's hearts and minds when it comes to important social issues. Adidas, Red Bull and many other brands have done studies on this. One of which includes The Hollywood Reporter’s article in 2014 on how the television series Will & Grace impacted 27 percent of audience members to shift their opinions on gay marriage because of their better understanding of gay characters seen on the show.

”America; I Too” was created with these types of young liberal audiences in mind in addition to immigrants, families, students, community organizers, elected officials, attorneys, educators and librarians. The film's purpose is to educate and create a better understanding in order to not only combat stereotypes but also redirect the immigration reform conversation in a way that makes a real impact on policy, our cultures and American society.

Room: Riverside Suite

Sponsors: Disability

Youth, Aging, and the Life Course

Organizer &

Presider: J. Dalton Stevens, Syracuse University

Description:  Disability is simultaneously a relational experience, identity, complex life course process, minority status, and form of oppression. This session is comprised of papers that explore disability and social relationships across the life course including papers focused on but not limited to (1) family dynamics, (2) partnering, (3) sexuality, (4) gender, (5) friendships, (6) social networks, (7) employment, (8) disability theory, (9) identity, (10) stigma, (11) health care, (12) education, and (13) benefit program participation. This session intends to bring together a diverse array of papers focused on describing and explaining social relationships during different times in the life course experienced by people with disability. This area is historically underdeveloped, and this session addresses the gap in the disability and life course literature pertaining to barriers, facilitators, opportunities, and experiences of social relationships for those with disability.
