The disability.gov website celebrates its tenth anniversary.
If you don’t have a disability, it’s a good bet you know someone who does, and disability.gov wants to celebrate those connections.
The organization has launched the “What’s Your Connection?” campaign to commemorate the website’s 10th anniversary. They note that there are nearly 57 million individuals with disabilities in the United States, all “connected to the people around them in some way.”
They are sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, parents, grandparents, co-workers, neighbors and friends. The project is collecting stories and photos from/about people with disabilities in their communities.
The program intends to demonstrate that disability is a natural part of human life and to focus on the social integration and contributions of people with disabilities.
People nationwide can participate in the campaign by submitting a captioned photograph or video that answers the question “What’s your connection to disability?”Submissions will be accepted through July 31, 2013.
