December 3 is International Day of People with Disabilities
"The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life."
Halifax Public Libraries and Halifax Regional Municipality are proud to share a collection of resources, reading lists, and local events in honour of this day. The theme for 2023 is United in action to rescue and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for, with and by persons with disabilities.
