CDE Launches ‘Working Works’ PSA

Today, in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) launched its latest PSA campaign, “Working Works.” Through the voices of several individuals, the PSA explores the many reasons people work, including after injury or illness. Its four primary cast members include Major League Baseball great Cal Ripken, Jr. and three other individuals who partnered with their employers and health-care professionals to make a plan to stay at or return to work following illness or injury. Their stories emphasize the importance of working together on supportive work strategies—for the benefit of individuals, families, employers and the nation. “Working Works” is the fourth in the CDE’s series of PSAs exploring different aspects of disability employment.
