ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE WITH HUMOR
Imagine a news magazine-type television program like 60 Minutes or 20/20. Then imagine the anchors, segments, field reporters and commercials. Now imagine instead that the news magazine-type show is called Human Rights TV, the anchors and field reporters all have disabilities, and tonight's entire show will be devoted to people with disabilities and be called This is YOUR Right.
This is YOUR Right is a thoughtful, hard hitting and at times, irreverent look at where people with disabilities have been and where they want to be. The production includes funny commercials about fictitious products and services that are intended to lampoon situations that people with disabilities encounter in everyday life. Use it for community awareness, diversity training, staff orientation and training, consumer advocacy, and college level instruction.
