October is Disability Employment Awareness Month in the US. This month, we reaffirm our commitment to equal rights and accessibility for everyone. This year’s theme is Increasing Access and Opportunity. We must consider how disability shows up, is celebrated, supported, or appears to be absent in our work, life, regions. For more information, please visit The Library of Congress’s page on it here.
