On December 3, 2020, Independent Living Centre Kingston will be celebrating The International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This event is observed annually to promote the full and equal participation of persons with disabilities and to take action for the inclusion of persons with disabilities in all aspects of society and development.
The theme this year is “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World”.
On this day, we are reminded of our responsibility to better understand disability issues. We are also called to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in our communities.
