AAPD Featured on CBS Jumbo Screen in Times Square

15-Second Spot Will Be Shown Throughout Month of November

WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is pleased to announce the organization will be featured in a 15-second public service announcement on the CBS Spectacular jumbo screen in New York City's Times Square on 42nd Street throughout the month of November.

AAPD, which is the largest cross-disability membership organization in the U.S., produced the 15-second spot to promote the organization to the general public and engage them in AAPD's mission - to be a powerful voice for change - politically, economically, and socially - and to unite the diverse community of people with disabilities, including their family, friends and supporters.

"This is an amazing opportunity to introduce millions of people to AAPD, and show them what our organization is all about," said Andrew Imparato, President and CEO of the American Association of People with Disabilities. "We hope viewers will visit our Web site for more information and sign up for our e-mail group, Justice For All, connect with us via our social networking channels or become a member."

The spot features AAPD board member and 2008 Paul G. Hearne Award winner Rahnee Patrick who is the Interim Director of Programs at Access Living Chicago and deaf attorney Howard Rosenblum, who works for Equip for Equality, Illinois' Protection & Advocacy agency, and founded the Midwest Center on Law and the Deaf, telling viewers they support AAPD, and asking them to do the same.

Viewers are also encouraged to visit AAPD's Web site at or follow the organization on Twitter href="">@AAPD.

The video is showcased on the AAPD Web site, in addition to behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot and information about the participants.

AAPD thanks Terry Maday of Maday Productions and Patrick Hughes of Inclusion Solutions for helping make the video possible.
