October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month! Organizations around the Country are celebrating the work that people with disabilities participate in. The theme for this year is “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion” The theme was chosen to highlight that people with disabilities are a part of the workforce that will be needed as the nation recovers from the COVID-19 Pandemic.
