This month, Mizzou is observing its inaugural Disability Culture Month. As the name indicates, Disability Culture Month expands Mizzou celebration of disability from a week to an entire month to better highlight its unique history of disability inclusion.
“‘Disability’ is a very powerful word,” said Mizzou junior Sophia Martino, president of the Mizzou Disability Coalition, a student organization that aims to educate on disability as a form of diversity, advocate for accessibility and facilitate volunteer opportunities.
“The disabled community is so powerful and enriching,” Martino said. “It is so important to celebrate the individuals with disabilities and the strides taken to make our community accessible.”
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, most Disability Culture Month events will be virtual. View the events at diversity.missouri.edu/disability.
