Each March, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), and their partners work together to create a social media campaign that highlights the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities. The campaign seeks to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all facets of community life, as well as awareness of the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.

If you have resources or materials regarding developmental disabilities that you think should be included and shared with this campaign, please send them to Rafael Rolon-Muniz at firstname.lastname@example.org! They will feature the submissions in our resource guide and they will be shared with audiences all across the country. Examples of resources include, but are in no way limited to, videos, toolkits, news articles, photos, personal stories, promising practices, etc.
A special element of the campaign that we began last year is to highlight the artwork created by people with disabilities. With the artist’s permission, they will highlight their art in the DD Awareness Month campaign imagery. Please note that any artwork submitted to NACDD may be subject to modification by NACDD. All artists will be given credit. If would like your artwork to be featured, please send them to Rafael Rolon-Muniz at email@example.com.
