March is Disability Awareness Month
In honor of National Disability Month, we want to recognize the strength, resilience, and achievements of people with disabilities. This month, let's celebrate the diversity of our community and raise awareness about the barriers that people with disabilities still face.
"National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month (D.D.A.M.), observed throughout March, is a nationwide event to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities and address the barriers that those with disabilities face. Inclusion is necessary since about 15% of the world’s population lives with a disability. D.D.A.M. is about understanding the relationship between the way people function and how they participate in society and making sure everybody has the same opportunities in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities. Find out why acceptance is a fundamental element of D.D.A.M. and what you can do to support this initiative."
