If you found solace in watching Unrest, if you felt seen, if Unrest moved you or your friends, family, neighbors to greater understanding and empathy, please vote and encourage others to vote as well.

Winning this award would mean renewed interest in Unrest and therefore, further visibility for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Let’s keep elevating ME every chance we get until the neglect and stigma are gone for good.

    I’ve had ME for over 20 years. It wasn’t until my grown children watched ‘Unrest’ with their spouses, did they finally understand this devastating illness, and how it affects the patient and especially the main caregiver. I cast my vote for Unrest as it brought my family back together in the understanding and empathy for all involved in this horrendous disease.

Being Black and disabled is an entirely different experience. Not only do we deal with ableism, but we also deal with racism, especially medical racism. According to the
