    "Jennifer Brea is impacting the world for people living with the invisible disability, M.E. with her award winning film, "Unrest!" https://www.InvisibleDisabilities.org Jennifer Brea was selected to be IDA's first ever Media Impact Award, because of her incredible passion and determination to tell her personal story of illness. She brought visibility to the millions of people living with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) around the world, as the Director and Producer of the international award-winning documentary film, "Unrest."

    FYI, here's the Invisible Disabilities Association web page listing all the 2019 awards:

    https://invisibledisabilities.org/s...invisible-no-more-the-reveal-10-18-19/#awards

    And the page describing the 2019 Media Impact Award:

    https://invisibledisabilities.org/s...-18-19/2019-media-impact-award-jennifer-brea/

    When I first looked at the website I was unable to access any of these pages. I reported the errors to the webmaster and they sent email this morning reporting that they fixed things. Just a reminder that sometimes reporting an error will make a difference. :)

    By the way, I just noticed the little circled "R" next to Invisible Disabilities (not the whole phrase Invisible Disabilities Association).

    I now remember that this group was the one who successfully trademarked that phrase, a phrase that seems to be generic and should not have a trademark. I have not kept up with the controversy over the past few years but here's what EFF had to say about it in 2016:
