ATX Together: Disability and Employment


In recognition of October’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month, please join us for the taping of our next installment of ATX Together in Studio 6A at KLRU-TV, Austin PBS.

KLRU Editorial Director Judy Maggio will host this one-hour television special airing in October.

In dialogue with the audience, the focus of the evening will be on the employment challenges and successes of people in Austin who have disabilities. Together we will explore how to encourage local employers to consider hiring people with disabilities as well as shine a light on local employers and agencies that are helping provide meaningful employment for people with disabilities. The town hall will be interactive and you are welcome and encouraged to share your thoughts. There will also be a special appearance by TILT Performance Group.
