DD Awareness

Celebrate DD Awareness in March

Every March, OCDD asks Oregonians to help us highlight the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities.

2017 Events

In 2017, we organized a #SidebySide photo rally. We asked people to share a photo of a person with developmental disabilitiesā€”alongside a friend, co-worker, sibling, family member or other member of their community. The response was enthusiastic: More than 200 photos were shared to OCDD’s Facebook page during the rally. Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2017 Side by Side campaign!

A few of our favorite photos from people across Oregon recognizing the ways people with disabilities and their families contribute to local communities.

Governor Adds Her Voice

We appreciate Oregon Gov. Kate Brown for signing the 2017 Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month Proclamation. It specifically recognized how Oregonians with and without disabilities live and work side by side across Oregon to form strong, diverse communities.

We Love Our Volunteers
