Katy Sullivan is an actress, producer, and gold medal-winning athlete. She spoke from the red carpet at the 2017 Media Access Awards. She celebrated the rising tide of voices seeking authentic representation in Hollywood.

Being a performer with a disability, the Media Access Awards is an incredibly important event. Because it helps recognize those individuals in this industry that are doing right by this minority group–portraying individuals with disabilities in an authentic way. And hopefully getting louder and louder–it gets bigger every year!
