Move to Include is a national initiative that uses the power of public media to promote inclusion. It spotlights people of differing abilities and disability issues – including education, healthcare, housing, recreation, employment and advocating for positive change – through television, radio, news, special events, and social media. The initiative works to inspire and motivate people to embrace different abilities and include all people in all aspects of community life.

WCNY is participating in Move to Include, a 16 month project to promote inclusion in our communities. Through this initiative WCNY and its community partners hope to inspire and motivate people to embrace different abilities and include all people in every aspect of community life. WCNY is developing television, radio, and digital content and will be hosting events, primarily in July 2020, the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. You are invited to share your ideas and suggestions for project stories, events, and more with Debbie Stack, WCNY’s VP of Education and Engagement at 315-453-2424 or debbie.stack@wcny.org.

Move to Include was launched in 2014 as a partnership between WXXI Public Media in Rochester, NY and the Golisano Foundation, the nation’s largest private foundation devoted to supporting programs for people with intellectual disabilities. The Foundation has provided more than $1 million in funding to date for Move to Include. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting recognizes the importance of improving inclusion by raising up the voices of those with disabilities. For that reason they funded the expansion of Move to Include to five additional PBS stations in 2020 in a one-year pilot.

ADA 30th Anniversary for Our Times

Due to COVID-19, this year’s local celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) became a public TV event organized by disability community advocates. Emceed by Sally Johnston and Karin Franklin-King, the event featured guest speakers including Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh, presentation of the inaugural Donna Reese Disability Advocacy Award, and a tribute to nationally recognized ASL interpreter Joanne Jackowski. The event, broadcast on WCNY-TV on July 26, 2020, the actual anniversary of the passage of the landmark ADA legislation, was part of WCNY’s Move to Include initiative. National funding for Move to Include is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

CONNECT NY: The ADA Today

This episode of the statewide CONNECT NY program looks at the impact of the American’s with Disability Act in New York State 30 years after its passage. Issues explored include the fact that nearly 70% of individuals with disabilities still cannot find employment; how to break the stigmas attached to the word “disabled”; and what needs to happen to meet the needs of New Yorkers with disabilities today.


Hermin Garic–After sustaining a spinal cord injury at the age of five, Hermin Garic and his family moved to Utica to get away from the Bosnian War. Wheelchair-bound, Hermin since has become one of the top wheelchair racers in the country, and he devotes his life to educating the public on sports inclusion for the disabled.

 

Bryony Grealish–Being born with only one digit on each hand hasn’t slowed down Bryony Grealish. Bryony is inspiring cooks of all abilities and changing the narrative on how we view disability in the kitchen.

WCNY is grateful for the expertise, suggestions, and feedback of organizations that advocate and provide services to people with disabilities for their participation in WCNY’s Move to Include initiative.
