October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month

December 3, 2015

Each October, the Office of Disability Employment Policy within the U.S. Department of Labor observes National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This month-long celebration is a time to honor the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. The theme for this year—which marks 70 years since the first observance—is "My Disability is One Part of Who I Am."

At ACL, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to find and perform integrated, competitive employment.

Why NDEAM Matters:

Only one-third (32.0%) of working-age people with disabilities were employed on average in the 2010-2012 period, compared to over two-thirds (72.7%) of people without disabilities.
