Inclusion & Disability Awareness- October 2023

Disability inclusion means understanding the relationship between how people function and how they participate in society and ensuring everybody has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and desires. In an effort to effectively spread awareness and foster inclusion, each month we commemorate and share Disability Awareness information, resources, and celebrations.

Acceptance and understanding of disabilities is an important part of creating a more inclusive and equitable society for everyone. We must commit to promoting understanding of disability issues in Tennessee and worldwide! ????

There are so many reasons to celebrate in the disability community during the month of October that we made a little video to share them all at once. Mark your calendars and visit throughout the month to stay connected to the community during these special days.
