Imagine a world where we no longer had to have ‘International Day of ….” (fill in the gap with under-supported minority group).
Imagine communities and workplaces where people were all treated equally, regardless of their gender, colour, heritage, or preferences.
Today is International Day of People with a Disability. The theme for IDPwD 2020 is “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World”.
What if we deleted the word “disability” and worked every day toward a more inclusive, accessible and sustainable world?
The IDPwD website describes their overarching focus as creating a society that strives for inclusivity through the removal of physical, technological and attitudinal barriers for people with disability.
Let’s all work on that for everyone!
To quote the philosopher John Lennon…“Imagine all the people sharing all the world”
