Champions of Change - Winning the Future Across America

Is there a "Champion of Change" in your community? The White House is asking for your help in identifying and honoring people who are breaking down barriers to the middle class by providing employment opportunities for workers with disabilities, including workers with significant disabilities. These extraordinary leaders will be invited to the White House to celebrate their accomplishments and showcase what they are doing to ensure that people with disabilities have a fair shot at succeeding in good jobs and pursuing their career goals.
Nominees may include small business owners, managers of large or medium-sized companies, and business entrepreneurs and others who recognize that people with disabilities are a critical part of the American workforce. The nomination deadline is September 14, 2014.
