What we're about

IN GENERAL: You would join our group if you like anything and everything Sci-Fi Fantasy, want to feel part of a team that empowers each other, and would be interested in seeing more People Living with Disabilities on the View Screen.

OUR MISSION: Our mission is to inspire you to see the self-empowering value of science fiction through multi-media. We mainly use television series pilot episodes because they lend an advantage in the self discovery process of development. Our long term goal as group will be to continue to work with endeavors that aim to place more actors and actresses living with disabilities on the view screen.

OUR VISION: Because science fiction is so broad we are absolutely sure that through our communications, you will leave our meetings feeling more acknowledged, determined, and independent. Through our interactions we will determine how science fiction relates to those of us living with a disability which is the most important focus of this group.

OUR POLICY: This is for those who both want to be empowered and those who like Sci-Fi and Fantasy, this group was started because its founder used the genre of books, shows, movies, etc., to help him overcome obstacles through his life showing him that being different from others wasn't so bad and in the end found he wasn't much different at all. We are a pro-disability and LGBTQ Affirming group, but ALL (and we really mean "all") are welcome and encouraged to come.

OUR REGULAR MEETUP TIMES: We will meet every last Wednesday of the month at our regular location at 112 North 8th Street, Suite 600, Philadelphia, PA 19107. We get together from 2pm to 4pm and serve healthy "Movie Style Snacks" (we get them from Trader Joes, lol.) When you get there tell them "Yeremiah" invited you. All of our events are accessible. If you need special accommodations please call us ahead of our event.

SPECIAL EVENTS: We will also have special events so look out for those too.
