Leading Disability Organizations Launch National Campaign for Disability Employment
Date:9/18/2009

Unprecedented 'What Can YOU Do?' Initiative Calls on Employers and Others to Improve the Disability Employment Landscape

WASHINGTON, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Last evening at the U.S. Business Leadership Network's (USBLN) Annual Conference and National Career Fair, several leading disability organizations launched the Campaign for Disability Employment, a new collaborative effort to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities. Announcement of the nationwide campaign - built around the theme "What Can YOU Do?" - came during the conference's keynote speech by Robert David Hall, actor and disability rights advocate.

Every day, people with disabilities can and do add value to America's workplaces. However, in both good economic times and bad, people with disabilities have far fewer job opportunities than the general population. The Campaign for Disability Employment's goal is to promote the hiring, retention and advancement of people with disabilities and dispel negative stereotypes about disability and employment.

Working to raise awareness and change attitudes, What Can YOU Do? reinforces that people with disabilities want to work and that their talents and abilities positively impact businesses both financially and organizationally. The Campaign offers a range of education and outreach tools, all designed to engage employers, people with disabilities, family and educators, and the general public. These include the community-building Web site, www.whatcanyoudocampaign.org, which offers users the chance to learn about disability employment issues and express their commitment to advancing disability employment. It also allows people with disabilities, including youth, to share their job skills and career interest
