MRI will be holding a variety of events to celebrate National Developmental Disability Awareness Month. MRI will also be holding an internal campaign for National Spread the Word to End the Word Month.
The following activities are also scheduled for Adult Day programming at MRI’s main building as part of National Developmental Disability Awareness Month:
- Spread the Word to End the Word Pledge Booth – Monday, March 14
- “Celebrating Us” Dance Contest – Tuesday, March 15
- “Celebrating the Journey” Recognition/Honors Program – Wednesday, March 16
- MRI Day Vocational Training Annual Client Conference – Thursday, March 17
Along with structured activities throughout the month, MRI Adult Services will be holding an “I am” Campaign, where individuals receiving MRI services can utilize their creativity in written or picture form to describe who “I am”. The MRI “I am” Campaign reinforces that people should not be identified as their disabilities. We encourage you to join us in celebrating abilities and encouraging self-advocacy.
