CDE Announcements

Labor Department Offers COVID-19 Resources

The Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) and its funding entity, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), care about the health and safety of America’s workers, at all times.

CDE Releases ‘Who I Am’ Radio PSA in Honor of ADA30

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.

Campaign for Disability Employment

The Campaign for Disability Employment's (CDE) What can YOU do?” (WCYD) initiative is a positive outreach initiative aimed at increasing the employment rate of people with disabilities by challenging common misperceptions. It sends a clear message: people with disabilities want to work and their talents and abilities benefit businesses both financially and organizationally. By implementing good workplace practices, such as maintaining a flexible and inclusive work environment, businesses can capitalize on the talents of qualified people with disabilities. All it takes is recognizing the value they add to the workplace and fostering a work culture welcoming of the talents of all individuals. We encourage organizations of all sizes and in all industries to join our effort. Vist WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org to learn more! Contact - info@WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org
