Learn how you can become more involved civically! Candace Cable talked about concrete steps all of us can take, like writing op-eds, posting on social media, visiting elected officials, attending town halls and asking questions – and how RespectAbility can support you in this type of work. In addition, Delbert Whetter and Andrea Jennings spoke about their journeys about becoming more civically involved. Jennings recently was sworn in as Accessibility and Disability Commissioner for The City of Pasadena. Likewise, Whetter recently was appointed by the City of Santa Monica to serve a four-year term as Commissioner on its Disabilities Commission. They are both passionate about their interests for disability inclusion – both in the entertainment industry and political realm.
