What is Disability History Month?
Disability History Month [DHM] runs from 22 November to 22 December each year.
It is an opportunity for PCS members to reflect on the experience and struggles of disabled people in Britain and around the world, and to celebrate and encourage individual and collective activism to challenge discrimination.
Why PCS supports Disability History Month
In the way we organise ourselves and campaign we always strive to ensure we are representing all of our members. We work with members to promote equality and tackle discrimination in the workplace, society and the wider world
Disability History Month is essential in providing information and raising awareness of the contributions that disabled people make, and also the challenges, and discrimination they have faced, and continue to face.
