Telling authentic, accessible stories that empower our community to advocate for disability rights

Rooted in Rights produces videos and social media campaigns exclusively on disability rights issues.  The team of filmmakers, writers, designers, and communicators produces videos and write content from locations around the world.  Our platforms are for people with disabilities, disability rights advocates, and their allies to learn, connect, and organize for change.

Rooted in Rights is dedicated to making content accessible and creative at the same time.  All of our creative content is made with maximum accessibility in mind so that as many of our audience members as possible can engage with the content.  Rooted in Rights content is intended to support efforts to defend and advocate for the rights of people with disabilities and empowers our audience to create change through online and offline advocacy.
