The Advocacy In Media team; a sub-committee of the Community Ambassadors Resource Alliance (CARA); of which Ohio Valley Goodwill is a founding member, is delighted to announce the Finalists for the 2009 Advocacy In Media (AIM) Luncheon. This year the group is recognizing members of the media in both the Print and Electronic categories. The AIM awards were created to recognize the use of “People First” language by members of the media when writing about people with disabilities. The use of “People First” language emphasizes the person first rather than their disability.
Congratulations to this year’s Advocacy In Media (AIM) Award finalists! We appreciate your use of People First language in your coverage of stories featuring individuals with disabilities.
