New Yorker Jason DaSilva is facing the life-changing decision of whether to relocate to Austin, Texas to be closer to his young son who has moved with his mother following their recent divorce. Facing a rapidly progressing form of multiple sclerosis and experiencing a swift decline in his motor skills, Jason soon learns that the harsh restrictions of the US Medicaid system would prevent him from accessing the services he needs to live life as fully as possible, and from being the dad he wants to be for his young son. Left with this heart-aching choice, When We Walk, the follow-up to DaSilvas Emmy Award-winning film When I Walk, reflects on Jasons own childhood and relationship with his father, making his fight to keep his son resonate even more powerfully.
All attendees are invited to stay after the screening for a Q & A followed by a cocktail reception with HRW's deputy director for the disability rights division.
