March is Disability Awareness Month. This year’s Disability Awareness Month theme is “I’m Not Your Inspiration” – emphasizing that people with disabilities are people first. Often, people with disabilities who are successful, athletic, employed or simply good neighbors are put in the spotlight as an inspiration to others. While it can be difficult to navigate life with a disability, many people in the disability community would prefer to be acknowledged for the many real contributions they make and for a life well lived.
The Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities has put together some fantastic Disability Awareness Month videos. These videos are a great tool to explain the campaign theme and to start a discussion. You can watch the videos at the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities’ YouTube channel here.
