Rooted In Rights: Got something to say? Work with staff from Rooted in Rights to produce a creative, fully accessible video that advocates for disability rights.

Then, we'll use a simple set of tools to shoot a professional video. You'll learn the basics of free apps and edit your own video. Finally, you'll ensure video accessibility and of course, share them online via social media!
