March is Disability Awareness Month
Celebrate Disability Awareness Month this March
Indiana's commemoration of Disability Awareness Month is sponsored by the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities.
This year's Disability Awareness Month theme is "Be Cool. We Are." Here is a great overview of the theme from the Council:
The 2019 Disability Awareness month campaign theme is “Be Cool. We Are.” No matter the differences between people, it is always better to treat others the way you want to be treated, and this is especially true when interacting with friends, co-workers, and other Hoosiers who live with disabilities. The theme is all about the importance of being comfortable in your own skin and making the conscious decision to be yourself, because acting different around someone with a disability isn’t cool.
Help celebrate Disability Awareness Month this March in Indiana by hosting events and activities in your community, workplace, school, and anywhere. On the Indiana Disability Awareness Month website, you will find
resources, tools, and information to help you plan an activity or event
