Disability Employment Awareness Month


Disability Employment Awareness Month

Ozark Independent Living spokesperson Terry Hampton recently met with Ozark County Presiding Commission John Turner, left, and Ozark County Western District Commissioner Greg Donley for the signing of a proclamation recognizing October as Disability Employment Awareness Month. (Eastern district commissioner Gary Collins was unavailable for the signing.) The designation, recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor, serves to promote disability employment issues and recognizes the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities, Hampton said, adding that one of OIL’s core services is to advocate for those with disabilities and for the independent living movement.” For more information contact OIL at ozarkcil.com or 417-256-8714.
