Supporting People with Disabilities
A key part of the PBS mission – in partnership with its member stations – is to serve the American public with programming and services that express a diversity of perspectives, including diverse physical, cognitive, emotional, and developmental abilities. Based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 19% of the U.S. population (or 56.7 million people) are living with a disability. People with disabilities are more than a number; they are our colleagues, part of our communities, and members of our families. This webinar spotlights the work PBS member stations are doing with and for people with disabilities. Staff from Iowa Public Television, WFYI, WGCU and WXXI focus on the programs and initiatives they engage in daily (on-air and off), the partnerships they’ve built, and how you can do this work at your station.
