The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) held its 2011 Awards Gala Tuesday evening, which brought together leaders from government, business and the disability and civil rights communities.
AAPD honored Glee's cast and creative team for leading the way in how young people with disabilities are perceived in popular culture.
Actress Lauren Potter, who plays the role of Becky Jackson on "Glee," accepted the award on behalf of "Glee."
Potter has Down Syndrome and said she will use her fame to help change negative perceptions about people with disabilities and will work to stop bullying by teaming up in an anti-bullying campaign with abilitypath.org.
