DD Awareness Toolkit 2021

March is the Nationally recognized month raising awareness about individuals diagnosed with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

DP and Access Gallery created a campaign with the theme is "I Am…” I am more than my disability.

The campaign’s aim is to help people understand who [you] are as a person instead of being defined by [your] diagnosis.
