Presidential Proclamation: National Disability Employment Awareness Month 2015

President Obama has released a proclamation naming October 2015 as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).

America is at its strongest when we harness the talents and celebrate the distinct gifts of all our people. This October, as we observe the 70th anniversary of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, let us pay tribute to all who fought for better laws, demanded better treatment, and overcame ignorance and indifference to make our Nation more perfect. In their honor, and for the betterment of generations of Americans to come, let us continue the work of removing obstacles to employment so every American has the chance to develop their skills and make their unique mark on the world we share.
President Barack Obama
