Rooted in Rights partners with University of Washington’s DO-IT Program to train disabled youth how to write, shoot and edit videos to tell their own stories.

 

The DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) Center is dedicated to empowering people with disabilities through technology and education. It promotes awareness and accessibility—in both the classroom and the workplace—to maximize the potential of individuals with disabilities and make our communities more vibrant, diverse, and inclusive.
