On May 16, Social Security announced the launch of a new disability education and awareness initiative, “The Faces and Facts of Disability.” Through this campaign, Social Security hopes to educate the public about the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program and dispel common misconceptions. To learn more about the campaign, visit the Faces and Facts of Disability website at www.socialsecurity.gov/disabilityfacts.
As part of this campaign, Social Security developed a series of outreach materials for groups and organizations, at http://www.socialsecurity.gov/disabilityfacts/materials.html, that includes fact sheets, newsletter articles, posters, social media content, PowerPoint slides, and web widgets. Social Security is asking community organizations to use these materials, such as the web widgets, that you can upload to your organization’s homepage, to help promote the initiative.
