Why we celebrate Disability History Month


"For disabled students like myself, Disability History Month is all about educating and enriching ourselves with knowledge about the liberation movements that struggled for the rights we have today. As the majority of achievements for disabled rights have come from a historical struggle, it is really important that we remember those who fought for us. The month is also about celebrating our achievements and acknowledging the contributions that disabled people have made worldwide, which too often, go missed or unheard. Finally, it’s about disabled people increasing our visibility and coming together in these celebrations and this pursuit of knowledge - to create a better network of support and community for ourselves.
