Disability Employment Awareness Campaign features R.J. Mitte in PSA
UCP Celebrity Youth Ambassador and actor ("Breaking Bad") R.J. Mitte is just one of nine people with various disabilities who are happily working in their chosen fields in a new public service announcement from the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment. Created to complement the annual campaign for National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October, the PSA will roll out to television stations nationally starting this month. As a partner in the campaign, UCP will be distributing a branded version of the PSA to affiliates and featuring it on our Voices of UCP blog. It is also available in English and Spanish on YouTube under the title "Who I Am PSA."
