NATIONAL CENTER ON DISABILITY AND JOURNALISM

People with disabilities make up at least 19 percent of the U.S. population or 54.4 million people. The goal of the NCDJ is to provide support and guidance for journalists as they cover people with disabilities. 

Disability Beat Guide

A guide for researching and covering stories about people with disabilities. This beat guide comes from Covering Poverty - the cornerstone project of the Journalism Writing Lab, an initiative of the Cox Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management, and Leadership at the University of Georgia. 

SOCIAL ROLE VALORIZATION

Social Role Valorization (SRV) is a powerful set of ideas useful in addressing the marginalization of people in society by supporting them to have access to the same good things in life enjoyed by typical people. The International SRV Association was formed in 2013 to promote Social Role Valorization (SRV) development, education, assessment, and leadership to assist people and organizations to implement SRV concepts so that vulnerable people may have access to the good things in life.

DISABILITY RIGHTS STORYTELLERS FELLOWSHIP

The Disability Rights Storytellers Fellowship provides the opportunity for individuals with disabilities to learn and apply skills in digital media storytelling and disability advocacy.

DISABILITY STORIES FROM THE INSIDE

A group of self-advocates and educators working together to reclaim and teach others about intellectual disability history. Some of us are from a younger generation, who did not live in institutions. Nonetheless, many of us still experience institutionalized and unwanted forms of care and support. We have first-hand knowledge and diverse perspectives of what it means to live in communities that may continue to discriminate against people with intellectual disabilities. Our group also includes community advocates and researchers. These people help to organize the storytelling and activist work of survivors and younger generations with lived experience of intellectual disability.
