Are you a high school or college student, recent graduate, disabled veteran, transitioning youth?
Meet media professionals, peer mentors and employers at this online LCA Summit.

Participate in networking and self-disclosure workshops to sharpen your competitive edge.
Learn from panels on How to Make It in the Media and Deaf & Disability Narrative Imperative – when professional and storytellers with disabilities offer career tips and insights.
Media has the power to shatter myths about 59 million Americans with disabilities. LCA was created to help support current and emerging professionals with disabilities in all media sectors (TV, advertising, movies, news, theatre and interactive, including video games).
Together, we can re-frame the media debate to include more authentic
disability representation in front of and behind the camera/keyboard - and
build talent pipelines and mentoring circles to increase employment opportunities.
