I AM PWD Awareness Press Release | Screen Actors Guild

Vodpod videos no longer available.


This is Video Press Release for “I AM PWD”–Inclusion in the Arts and Media for Persons with Disabilities, provided by them with Captions and Audio Descriptions.

“Dedicated to ending descrimination and lack of inclusion…”
Supported by SAG, AFTRA, and Actors with Disabilities.

Ironically, there are some video of performances for I AM PWD and press conference videos that are not captioned, but this is from the SAG site, and not the org itself.
