COVID-19 Disability Community Gatherings

Want to connect with other people with similar disabilities who are also isolated and trying to get by?

Our COVID-19 Disability Community Gatherings are an interactive ZOOM series that feature expert self-advocates as facilitators and provide opportunities to establish: 1) community connectivity during isolation; 2) time to learn from one another and share resources; and 3) a pipeline to action-based solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inclusion in Children and Family Content: Representation of Women and Girls with Disabilities

Date: June 3, 2020
Time: 1:30 p.m. ET / 12:30 p.m. CT / 11:30 a.m. MT / 10:30 a.m. PT

RSVP: us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_PgqnNdflRfaRiBIt4ChN9w

With one-in-five people having a disability in the U.S. today, the lack of representation – just 3.1 percent on screen and even less in children’s television (less than one percent) – means that millions of people are unable to see themselves in media today. RespectAbility has been honored to play a part in changing this, including consulting on an array of films and TV shows, including the Netflix series The Healing Powers of Dude and The Disney Channel’s Bunk’D.

Please join us as we discuss the importance of inclusion in children and family media with:

  • Sophie Kim, Actress, The Healing Powers of Dude
  • Shaylee Mansfield, Actress, Disney+ film Noelle, The Disney Channel TV show Bunk’D and upcoming Netflix feature film Feel the Beat
  • Erica Spates, Executive Producer and Writer, The Healing Powers of Dude
  • Lachi, Award-Nominated Recording Artist and Voice-Over Actress
  • Bethany Johnson, Screenwriter and Actress
  • Moderated by Debbie Fink, Director of Community Outreach and Impact, RespectAbility
