In honor of Fishers’ celebration of National Disability Awareness Month, we’re featuring community stories related to disability and inclusion every Wednesday throughout March. Learn more about the celebration and how you can be an ally for disability inclusion at fishers.in.us/DisabilityAwareness.
This week, we’re celebrating the work of the Fishers Advisory Committee on Disability, which hosts our annual March Disability Awareness Month celebration in conjunction with the City of Fishers. The Fishers Advisory Committee on Disability (FACD) was established in 2017 to be the community voice representing over 90,000 citizens of and for disability awareness in the City of Fishers and Hamilton County.
The committee’s mission is to bring the community together—businesses, organizations, residents with disabilities, and various stakeholders to establish priorities and strategies to address the various challenges and needs facing the disability community. Their goal is to promote inclusion and accessibility and to strive to make Fishers a community where people with physical and intellectual disabilities can live life without limits.
Learn how the FACD has worked with the City of Fishers to build an inclusive community with the video below.
