As we push for more authentic representation for disabled people on-screen, it’s important to push for more accessible sets and working environments for everyone behind the camera, Disability education in production, and community connections that bring authenticity to the stories we tell. Join RespectAbility Fellow, 2020 Summer Lab alum, and media industry activist, Kiah Amara for a session all about the ins and outs of Production Accessibility, and how to get started doing this work and ensuring accessibility for all!
