October 1, 2020
AMC Networks will be airing the CDE’s “Who I Am” public service announcement on-air and online throughout National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) 2020. It’s all part of AMC Networks’ Visibility Collection—featured programming that spotlights and celebrates people living with disabilities. The Visibility Collection includes the all-new series of short films CripTales, Critics’ Choice Award-winner Push Girls, and Peabody Award-nominee This Close, which has received the Ruderman Family Foundation Seal of Authentic Representation. The collection will be available to stream for free (no log-in required) throughout October 2020. The CDE is grateful to AMC Networks for making the “Who I Am” PSA a part of its NDEAM programming!
June 30, 2020
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced that “Increasing Access and Opportunity” is the 2020 theme for October’s annual observance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This year’s NDEAM observation, the nation’s 75th, will be one of the culminating events of DOL’s year–long observance of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which centers on the same theme.
