January 20 International Day of Acceptance

The International Day of Acceptance is a day dedicated to the social acceptance of disability and to honor the late Annie Hopkins, founder of 3E LOVE and creator of the International Symbol of Acceptance.

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 will not be without a voice in society. You are not living disabled, you are living.

Tell 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 start change by demonstrating acceptance and showing the world that you embrace people of all abilities.

Embrace. Educate. Empower. Love Life.
