City of Bloomington Celebrates Disability Awareness Month in March

Bloomington, Ind. ‒ The City of Bloomington Council for Community Accessibility (CCA) joins communities across Indiana to celebrate March as Disability Awareness Month. The goal of Disability Awareness Month is to increase awareness and promote independence, integration and inclusion of all people with disabilities.

A wealth of activities will be occurring in Bloomington and on the IU campus giving everyone, including individuals with disabilities, family members, service providers, faculty and other community members, the opportunity to participate in events, educational opportunities, advocacy and the arts.

The events encourage everyone to consider ways in which our community is a welcoming one to people with disabilities.

Art galleries, film showings, trainings and webinars will be just some of the many activities available to the public in March. A full list of events, including attendance and contact information, is available online or contact CCA Staff Liaison Lucy Schaich at 812.349.3433.

The Council for Community Accessibility is a volunteer group that advocates for the interests of people with disabilities. The statewide theme for 2015 is "Love Where You Live." To find out more about the movement across Indiana, visit http://indianadisabilityawareness.org.
