March is national Disability Awareness Month.
In Indiana, more than 19 percent of the state’s population are children and adults with disabilities. The goal of the month-long observance is to increase awareness of those who have disabilities while also promoting inclusion and independence for all people.
This year’s theme is “Inclusion is Within Everyone’s Ability,” which is a reminder that everybody has a responsibility to help our communities become vibrant places that include people with disabilities.
