As some may know, October is Dwarfism Awareness Month.
Last year I wrote a proclamation and expected (as only one can expect in Rhode Island) to have to jump through hoops… BUT, lo and behold, I got an email response that October would be declared! It was super late in September, so I was both shocked and SO excited! This year, I got a head start and asked for the renewal of the proclamation in late Spring. And… it arrived just a few months ago!
I ask you to please make October Dwarfism Awareness Month in your state, too! HERE is the perfect wording!
Thank you for helping our community gain some footing- more people knowing, expressing and seeing that people with dwarfism are people. Please consider, even in the medical community, a picture of someone with dwarfism starts out with “This dwarf…”- no other disabilities say this. Most read as: “This PERSON with…”
Let’s make a change.
Let’s spread awareness.
