Friends, tell the world you embrace who you are; a person with social rights, who has an opinion, who has interests, who has goals and who loves life. You are a person who is empowered to make a difference in the world and not be without a voice in society. You are not living disabled, you are living.
 
To our supporters, join us in telling the world that you are accepting of people with disabilities. As our parents, siblings, relatives, spouses, children, lovers, coworkers, teachers, personal assistants, friends, and anyone else - you also have a role in our culture and life. You can have an impact on the future if you wear your heart on your sleeve and proudly demonstrate your acceptance of others.Tell the world you embrace who you are; a person with social rights, who has an opinion, who has interests, who has goals and who loves life; a person who is empowered to make a difference in the world and not be without a voice in society. You are not living disabled, you are living.
 
Let's join together to:
Embrace diversity. Educate your community. Empower each other. Love life.
Today, start the conversation of acceptance with the International Symbol of Acceptance: Wear your favorite 3E Love t-shirts, hoodies, buttons!  Ink a temporary tattoo onto your hand. Draw it on if you have to! Ask your friends to join us as well.
 
Let's take over the Internet!
  • Change your profile picture on Facebook to the symbol. Get people talking!
  • Tweet about today with #dayofacceptance
  • Post a photo of yourself and tell the world what the Wheelchair Heart symbol means to you!
When a person asks about the symbol, "What's that mean?" Well now it's your turn to tell them your story or what its significance is to you.
And maybe next time they will look at the traditional symbol a little differently.
