People with Disabilities Awareness Day

People with Disabilities Awareness Day: The 25th Anniversary. Reach out and make it great

People with Disabilities Awareness Day logo.For 25 years, telling your story has been the most powerful way to engage and inform elected leaders at People with Disabilities Awareness Day at the state Capitol. Thank you. This year, our date is Tuesday, March 10, 2020.

You may have heard most space inside and outside the Capitol is not available due to construction. This means no exhibitors, entertainment or space for 900+ people with disabilities and supporters. That’s OK. We still have creative ways to share your stories and keep the PWDAD spirit alive.

Whether you’re a person with a disability, a supporter, an exhibitor, an employer or a community partner, we can reach out together with calls, emails, success stories, notes, videos and social media on or near March 10. Can we count on you? If yes, please sign up here for #PWDAD2020 updates. Connect. Reach out. And continue to tell your powerful stories.
