What is Disabilities Awareness Month?
Disabilities Awareness Month operates with the expressed purpose of educating the public about everything from universal design in education to social justice, and employment issues impacting persons with disabilities. It also serves as a celebration of the many and varied contributions of individuals with disabilities throughout history.
