Today is International Day of Disabled Persons.
International Day of Persons with Disabilities has been recognized by the United Nations since 1992.
A Day of Justice and Awareness
People with disabilities are at higher risk of “violence including stigma, discrimination, and ignorance.” Plus, a study from the American Psychological Association showed that 33 percent of adults with disabilities had extreme levels of stress. Also, there’s often a lack of social support for disabled people and their caregivers as well.
