December 3rd is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, an annual celebration of people with disabilities.
This years’ theme is ‘Fighting for rights in the post-COVID era’ to recognize people with disabilities were some of the most impacted by the COVID19 pandemic. The International Day of People with Disabilities website calls on “domestic and international public health officials, political representatives, advocates, supporters, and every citizen in every community, to learn from the experiences of people living with disabilities during this pandemic, and push for more meaningful investments into the socioeconomic building blocks which will reduce the barriers faced by people with disabilities in every community on earth.”
