March is Disability Awareness Month across the nation.
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 “Love Where You Live,” which is a reminder that everybody has a responsibility to help our communities become vibrant, inclusive places.
