When we look at someone, do we see all of who they are? The Campaign for Disability Employment created the “Who I Am” PSA with that very question in mind. “Who I Am” features nine real people with disabilities—some obvious and some not—sharing how they describe themselves, from personal interests to family relationships to occupations. Among them is film and television actor RJ Mitte, best known for his roles in AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and ABC Family’s “Switched at Birth.” Rather than be defined by disability, these individuals are the sum of their many life roles—which includes working in jobs they love.
This online toolkit features a range of integrated materials to help you or your organization support the message of the “Who I Am” PSA.
Download or order the “Who I Am” Discussion Guide to plan and lead a discussion about the PSA among youth, parents, teachers, employers or others. (The hard-copy mailed version comes with an accessible, talking menu DVD featuring various versions of the PSA.)
