The future of disability empowerment is one where people with disabilities are equally supported alongside their peers without disabilities.

I always tell people to only listen to those people who tell you that you can do it.

Mediaplanet’s cross-platform edition of “Disability Empowerment” educates readers on the growing opportunities and disappearing barriers that are changing the everyday lives of individuals with disabilities. It aims to empower those with learning disabilities by helping them better understand, explore and utilize their differences— encouraging them to thrive, in both academic and professional environments, and inspiring parents to foster their success.

“Glee” star Lauren Potter graces the cover of the print publication. Through an exclusive interview on the interior, she opens up about her battle with Down syndrome and the obstacles she overcame to achieve her dreams. “I always tell people to only listen to those people who tell you that you can do it,” she says, “Not those who tell you that you can’t.” Potter offers personal advice on how individuals with disabilities can achieve their dreams.

The print component of “Disability Empowerment” is distributed within the weekend edition of USA Today, with a circulation of approximately 250,000 copies and an estimated readership of 750,000. The digital component is distributed nationally through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.
