Help the National Council on Disability Kick Off Its Online “Family Faces of Disability” Photo Album


Help the National Council on Disability (NCD) bring its new report, “Rocking the Cradle: Ensuring the Rights of Parents with Disabilities and Their Children,” to life by submitting a photograph of your family to NCD’s new “Family Faces of Disability” photo album, to be shared on the NCD Facebook page. With the “Family Faces of Disability” photo album, NCD is seeking photos that capture your family’s day-to-day life as a way to personalize the issues faced by parents with disabilities in the United States.
For accessibility reasons, all photographs submitted to NCD’s “Family Faces of Disability” photo album MUST include a visual description of the picture. NCD retains the right to remove any photo or its accompanying description without warning, if either is deemed inappropriate. By submitting your photograph, you grant permission to the National Council on Disability to display these photographs on NCD’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages, or future print publications.
NCD borrowed an image from the “Media dis&dat” blog to use an example. The photograph can be seen at:

SAMPLE DESCRIPTION: Image shows the Willet family, a family of three. They are in a living room. A woman is seated in a large rocking chair in the center of the photo, smiling, holding an infant child against her chest. Both facing forward. A man stands to the right side of the chair with his leg behind it looking lovingly at the woman and child.
Please send your photos and descriptions to: FamilyPhotoAlbum@ncd.gov
