SHUKI MOVIDA

During the 90's and early 2000's, power outages were frequent in Georgia.  Electricity would typically come to homes for only a few hours each day.  At night people around the country sat by candlelight patiently waiting — until, eventually, electric lights would burst forth from windows and cheerful voices carried down the street, "Shuki movida!" The light has come.

Inspired by the Facebook page, 'Humans of New York', "Shuki Movida" seeks to bring to light the stories of special needs from across Georgia by giving voice to the persons who experience these needs directly.

These are stories of triumph, stories of difficulty, stories of every day.

MAC Georgia hopes that, through these glimpses into the lives of individuals, we will all understand more fully and be better equipped to respond.  Then, together, we can say, "Shuki movida!" The light has come, and we see better now.
