- Learn More
Begin to understand the issues by visiting the “Learn More” section of the website, watch Featured Videos, and explore Resources.
- Become a Champion for Hiring a Person with a Disability
Ask your employer to hire a person with a disability, or if you frequent a business, encourage them to. An internal champion is the best advocate for creating jobs and ensuring a good environment. Walgreens is a great example of this—Randy Lewis, a top executive whose son has autism, dreamt up a fully-accessible distribution center, and saw a 20% increase in productivity.
