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 Hollywood to stand up against ableism and other prejudice – while promoting positive, accurate, diverse and inclusive media portrayals on TV and in film.

INCLUSIVE PHILANTHROPY

EQUALITY, 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.

FAITH INCLUSION

Religious communities are stronger when they live up to their values – when they are welcoming, diverse, moral and respect each other. RespectAbility wants our family members with disabilities to be able to fully participate in our community. Thus, RespectAbility offers the following free resources below to all who care about inclusion and equal opportunity.
