Politics, the economy, sexuality, healthcare, natural disasters, race relations - every day there are breaking news and media images on these and other issues. Such stories and images have a powerful impact on all of us, but they seldom discuss or articulate the experiences and perspectives of people with disabilities. Learn more about what DisBeat is here.

DisBeat is a national communications initiative. Our purpose is to:

  1. Convene issue leaders, subject-matter experts, and other stakeholders to form responses; 
  2. Develop and help impleent communication strategies.
  3. Serve as a trusted source for reporters, journalists, writers, and screenwriters.
  4. Expand, frame, and reframe the way disability is discussed.
  5. Provide, curate, and create fact sheets, talking points, resources, white papers, etc.
