Representation in the media has a huge impact on how people see themselves and how others treat them. That’s why it’s so important to HUG to make sure our friends with disabilities get positive stories in the news and opportunities to break down barriers in advertising and marketing. With 1 in 4 adults in the U.S. living with a disability, we should be seeing more diversity in print and on screen. We’re working towards exactly that—check out HUG in the News, and give a round of applause to the media outlets making great partners for inclusion.
