Celebrate Disability Awareness Month in March
Indiana's commemoration of Disability Awareness Month is sponsored by the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities.
This year's Disability Awareness Month theme is "People, Not Punchlines" (follow the social media hashtag: #PeopleNotPunchlines). Here is a great overview of the theme from the Council:
Each March, we celebrate Disability Awareness Month throughout Indiana. On this, the 30th year for our campaign, we chose the theme “People, Not Punchlines” to acknowledge an ugly truth: Persons with disabilities are sometimes turned into objects of ridicule. But rather than being the butt of a joke, each individual in our campaign uses humor to open a conversation and highlight ways in which we can all understand each other better.
Help celebrate Disability Awareness Month this March in Indiana by hosting events and activities in your community, workplace, school, and anywhere. On the Indiana Disability Awareness Month website, you will find resources, tools, and information to help you plan an activity or event in your community this month.
