DSS flyer

We’re beyond awareness…..

October is DISABILITY & INCLUSIOMonth

Individuals with disabilities intersect all pathways of life — across religions, gender identities, ethnicities, races, religions, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic status. Even though, many of us still lack the grasp of the complexity, depth, and history of individuals with disabilities. Join DSS throughout the month of October to celebrate disability and engage in building inclusive learning environments. Appreciate the impact the disability community has and continues to make on our society and embrace disability as a natural part of our diversity.
