Authored on January 17, 2024

Every year, The Zero Project seeks inclusive, innovative and scalable solutions from around the world to submit their nominations. They are then evaluated in a multi-step process that includes peer review by thousands and voting. A select number of solutions receive a Zero Project award and support through the Zero Project network. The following is a compilation of AMI-audio readers reading a brief bio for each of the winning solutions. These are the people and organizations that are truly making a difference. Originally broadcast on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, December 3, 2023.

Ruminations on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Authored on December 22, 2023

As part of AMI-Audio’s coverage of the 2023 International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we asked a group of our friends, regular contributors and employees with disabilities for their thoughts on the IDPD. More specifically, we asked:

1. What does the IDPD mean to you?
2. What are steps society can take to tangibly improve the lives of persons with disabilities?

This is an audio collage, of sorts, showcasing nuanced approaches and differing opinions people within the community have towards the IDPD. Work needs to be done but it’s important to recognize the work that has been done as well as maintain an optimistic outlook.
