Dwarfism Awareness and Acceptance Month
October is Dwarfism Awareness and Acceptance Month and is dedicated to raising awareness and increasing public knowledge about dwarfism; and
There are over 400 different types of dwarfism, each with its own set of physical, psychological and social challenges; and
Many barriers and obstacles are faced by individuals with dwarfism in addition to the medical complications of dwarfism; and
This awareness month is an opportunity to learn about challenges faced by those born with dwarfism and a call to action to create positive awareness and change negative misconceptions.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim October 2021 as Dwarfism Awareness and Acceptance Month in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
