AT&T is excited to launch a new documentary that tells incredible stories about people who are on the front lines of social change in the United States. The premiere of the AT&T original documentary RESOLUTION is focused on innovative thinking about disability and will showcase five compelling organizations that are making a meaningful difference in the lives of people with disabilities. 

The film premieres Sunday, Oct. 30 on AUDIENCE Network (DIRECTV Channel 239 and U-verse Channel 1114) and follows the leaders of each of the organizations across the country – from Washington, DC to Venice, CA. Viewers will meet Pete Scott, a veteran Counterintelligence Agent, who served in the United States Army for 12 years and is now serving other veterans with disabilities through his nonprofit, Fields 4 Valor. They’ll also meet the organization that inspired and supported Pete in making that happen, Dog Tag, Inc.

Viewers will be introduced to Brittany Déjean. Her father’s experience with quadriplegia led her to create AbleThrive, an online platform that curates content to support people with disabilities. And there’s Mike Ebeling, CEO of Not Impossible Labs, who spends his days answering the questions, “If not now, then when?” and “If not me, then who?” All of these stories of perseverance will encourage viewers to think differently about the meaning of “disability.”

While RESOLUTION premiers in October, during National Disability Employment Awareness Month, AT&T supports these organizations throughout the year - whether through employee volunteering at Fields 4 Valor’s community garden or working with LaunchAbility to hire individuals at our corporate offices. AT&T is committed to elevating organizations who help people focus on their abilities.

RESOLUTION: Innovative Thinking about Disability premieres Sunday, Oct. 30 at 2 p.m. ET on AUDIENCE Network. It’s available exclusively on DIRECTV (Channel 239) and AT&T U-verse (Channel 1114). Beginning Nov. 1, customers will also be able to watch it On Demand.
