Rooted in Rights

  Our Mission 

To tell authentic, accessible stories that empower our community to advocate for disability rights. 

Our Values Human Rights 

We are rooted in rights because we believe all people deserve equal rights, and our work is dedicated to the people, communities and causes that seek to guarantee those rights for everyone, everywhere. 

Authentic storytelling

 We believe storytelling is how audiences are educated and energized. In the spirit of “nothing about us without us,” the stories we tell must be authentic representations of the people and communities we serve.

 Accessible creativity 

We are dedicated to making content accessible and creative at the same time. All of our creative content is made with maximum accessibility in mind so that as many of our audience members as possible can engage with the content.

 Empowered advocacy

 Our content supports efforts to defend and advocate for the rights of people with disabilities and empowers our audience to create change through online and offline advocacy.
