BOSTON, MA - National
(NTI) (http://www.nticentral.org) today announced their collaboration with popular country music singer Craig
Campbell. NTI and Campbell are working together to spread the word about NTI's mission and country-wide efforts to place Americans with Disabilities, including Disabled Veterans, back into the workforce. One in every five Americans has a disability, making Campbell's message about NTI valuable to more than 60 million people across the nation.
A rising country music star, Campbell is an avid supporter of NTI's mission to help Americans with Disabilities and Disabled Veterans back into the workplace. Campbell took time out of his busy touring schedule to record several PSAs for NTI. His most recent hit "Outskirts of Heaven" (Broken Bow Records/2016) serves as the background music for the PSAs. The messages are designed to increase public awareness of NTIs job placement services. Campbell's passion for living shines clearly through his music, and now Campbell shares that passion in collaboration with NTI as he helps spread the word about NTI's ability to help disabled Americans gain freedom and independence through employment.
Campbell along with Longshot Management, recorded the following Public Service Announcements for distribution at the following web address:
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2015 only 17.5 percent of persons with a disability were employed compared to 65 percent of those without a disability (https://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/disabl.pdf).
