Disability Rights Organizations

Making Videos Together

Whether your organization is based in Florida or Pennsylvania or Alaska, your constituents share the need to stay informed about their rights and benefits, and navigating the sometimes complex systems that sustain them. This information can help people access jobs, healthcare, housing - you name it.

So why not work together to get the word out?

Block by Block works with staff from Protection & Advocacy agencies to collaborate on short, easy-to-understand and very shareable videos on different disability rights related topics. When complete, each organization receives a version of the video, with their name, logo and contact information included. By working together, we share expertise, and share the costs.

There's two great ways to get involved. Join us in proposing and creating new videos - or order an existing video for your organization.

Full Transcript:

Narrator: We all make tons of decisions - every day! Some of them are small decisions, like whether or not you should buy that cool new video game or order pizza. Others are bigger. Like deciding what kind of career you want, where you want to live or who to vote for in an election. Everyone has the right to make decisions. Sometimes we need help with those decisions. If you're a young person or an older adult with a disability, your family, medical service provider, or someone else may ask a judge if they can become your guardian and make all of your decisions for you. This is a legal arrangement called, "Full Guardianship." Your parent or guardian might think they have to get guardianship to do things like attend IEP meetings or help you make financial decisions, but that's not true. There are other ways that people can help you make choices. For example, a Healthcare Proxy only helps make healthcare choices. and a Social Security Representative Payee only helps with some financial choices. But another option that lets you keep control of your choices is called, "Supported Decision-Making." A supported decision-making agreement lays out a plan for you to meet with a person or group of people you trust. These people can be family members, friends, co-workers, or others who can help you make decisions. You pick the decisions you might need help with, who can help, and how. Your group of supporters might look through information with you and talk through the pros and cons of different choices. They might talk with you about eating healthy foods, or ways to keep track of appointments. Want to choose a college, vote in elections, or change jobs? What about date, get married, or start a family? With Supported Decision-Making, you are the decision maker. With Guardianship, the guardian is the decision maker and makes all the final decisions. Some decisions are big, some are small, and all of them are important. Making your own choices can help you lead a happier, healthier life. If you are a person with a disability and feel like you need help making decisions, know that you have options. You have the right to decide.
