Individuals with disabilities across America.


Share your American dream in National Disability Institute's 4th Annual My American Dream – Voices of Americans with Disabilities Video Contest. Do you want to land your dream job? Own a home? Go to college? Start your own business? Share your goals and show America that people with disabilities want what everyone wants – a chance to live their American dreams. Be part of the conversation. Be part of the solution. Be part of advancing the economic empowerment and financial capability of people with disabilities.
