Twenty one NSW Ambassadors for Don’t DIS my ABILITY, the NSW celebration of International Day of People with a Disability 2010 have been announced. They include two people with Down syndrome, who will fill the role admirably, and who are in very good company. Congratulations Audrey and Gerard!
The Don’t DIS my ABILITY ambassadors are chosen each year from the arts, sports and business fields. Throughout the campaign these ambassadors will attend a variety of events across NSW to promote the key messages of the campaign. In representing the campaign they help in changing misconceptions surrounding disability by creating an environment that encourages participation in careers, leisure pursuits and social activities.
