Ono Students Find Beautiful Way to Mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities

When we see someone using a wheelchair, a guide dog or a prosthetic limb, we tend to focus on their differences and disabilities, rather than our shared social identity, political status, abilities, aspirations or dreams.  On December 3, to mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, students at Ono Academic College used hundreds of balloons to create something beautiful.  Standing shoulder to shoulder, students from diverse backgrounds formed the International Symbol of Access (ISA), also known as the Wheelchair Symbol, to make a statement about their solidarity with the disability community and the need for equality, dignity and equal opportunities for all in our society.
