March is Disability Awareness Month
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.
