January 30, 2020
This year marks 30 years since a major milestone in our nation’s history—the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In honor of ADA30, the Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) has released its “Who I Am” public service announcement (PSA) as a national radio PSA. Originally launched in 2014 as a television spot, “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. To learn how to air this and other CDE PSAs in your local market, contact the CDE.
