Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month is just around the corner! Throughout the month of March, ACL hopes you will join them in celebrating the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities.
Each year, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities partners with the Association for University Centers on Disabilities and the National Disabilities Rights Network on a DD Awareness Month social media campaign.. The campaign seeks to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life and the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.
The campaign is accepting submissions of videos, toolkits, news articles, photos, personal stories, promising practices, and more to include in their resource guide. The campaign is also accepting artwork by people with disabilities which it will highlight online.
