International Day of Persons with Disabilities
December 3, 2021, Worldwide

Proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1992, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been annually observed on December 3 around the world. Disabled adults must also be acknowledged for their strengths, and not just for their vulnerabilities.

Adults with disabilities may be vulnerable to abuse and neglect, and others may be lonely and isolated. Talk to your local CRN to see if they are planning any events to recognize this day. Even better, get involved and volunteer!
