  IMAGINE...

CRAWLING ON YOUR HANDS AND KNEES UP THE STAIRS OF THE  UNITED STATES CAPITAL BUILDING IN WASHINGTON, D.C. HOPING THAT SOMEONE WILL JUST LISTEN TO YOU...

 

People with disabilities living in the United States today have traveled a long road paved by discrimination and misunderstanding as well as advocacy, hope and acceptance. However, many American citizens are unaware of the role of people with disabilities in our nation’s history and most Americans still carry major misunderstandings of the issues facing this group within our population. "Disability History Week," the third week of October, presents a unique opportunity to offer up your creativity, technological talents and social consciousness to a worthwhile cause. As a member of a Public Service Team, you will be creating Public Service Announcements (PSAs) in an effort to increase education, awareness and sensitivity to the issues and history of people with disabilities. These PSAs will be submitted to media outlets for use during the month of October.
