“My heart’s still functioning, my brain’s still functioning…and don’t hold me back, because I won’t allow it,” says the disabled star of a new Netflix film. Kudos to Netflix for honoring the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act by streaming these seven films that tell real stories: Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution, Love on the Spectrum, Father Soldier Son, The Speed Cubers, Audible, Rising Phoenix (coming 8/26), and Deaf U (coming 10/9). Check out the awesome trailer and celebrate the ADA while learning more about this community.

Everyone loves a good story. We told more than 300 of them — and averaged over 200 responses to each one — during a three year project with the Jewish Federation and Foundation of Rockland County, NY. Rockland and Jewish, a Facebook campaign, was created to help restore self-esteem in the county’s mainstream Jewish community and increase public understanding of the diverse Jewish population there, after a series of unusual circumstances gave way to a rise in anti-Semitism. Need a social media campaign to help change public opinion? We can tell a story like nobody’s business!
