FIGHTING STIGMAS & PREJUDICES

CONNECTING PEOPLE, MAKING IT HAPPEN IN HOLLYWOOD

Entertainment contributes to the values and ideals that define us. What we see, we feel. And what we feel impacts how we act. RespectAbility is reaching out to entertainment professionals to promote positive, accurate, diverse and inclusive media portrayals on TV and in film, both in front of and behind the camera.

INCLUSIVE PHILANTHROPY

OPPORTUNITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

Philanthropy and nonprofits are at their best when they represent the people they serve including the one-in-five people who has a disability. RespectAbility offers free tools, resources and customized advice and training to help philanthropists and nonprofits learn how to welcome, include, serve and benefit from the talents of people with physical, learning, sensory, intellectual, mental health and other disabilities who often are left out of the diversity discussion.
