Disability ReFramed: In Media considers the opportunities, strategies, and challenges facing journalists and filmmakers on both sides of the camera, and imagines what the future could be.

What are the common pitfalls in news and film coverage; the impacts on public perception and community self-image; as well as strategies to overcome them?

Are people with disabilities considered, consulted, and represented accurately as both subjects and producers?

How are journalists considering disability and the impact on disabled people when covering major news stories ranging from employment, climate change, healthcare, education and more?

Is your newsroom, film set, or workplace ready to support disabled employees and makers?

How can organizations meaningfully implement "Nothing about us without us" to benefit storytelling in news and film?

Please send us your great questions!
