Today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2013! What can you do to observe it?
Include: Observance of the Day provides opportunities for Special Olympics athletes, family members, coaches, volunteers, Program staff and supporters to focus on issues related to the inclusion of people with disabilities in our communities, in our work places, in our schools, in our media.
Organize: Hold forums, public discussions and social media campaigns to help find innovative ways and means by which people with disabilities and their families can be further integrated into their societies and development plans.
Celebrate: Plan and organize Unified sports matches or demo skills matches to showcase and celebrate the abilities and talents of people with disabilities/intellectual disabilities as agents of change and development in the communities in which they live
Take Action: A major focus of the Day is practical and concrete action to include disability in all aspects of development, as well as to further the participation of persons with disabilities in social life and development on the basis of equality. Highlight progress and obstacles in implementing disability-sensitive policies, as well as promote public awareness to break barriers and open doors: for an inclusive society for all.
