The U.S. International Council on Disabilities (USCID) will host its eighth annual gala on December 7th, in celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

At its gala, USICD will honor leaders of the disability rights movement whose impact has been felt on the international stage-American policymakers are recipients of the Dole-Harkin Award, for distinction in public service to the global disability community, and an overseas disability rights advocate is honored for his/her outstanding work in advancing the rights, opportunities, and dignity of persons with disabilities.

This year, USICD will present the Dole-Harkin award to Mr. John L. Wodatch. The International Advocate award will be presented to Mr. Sadiq Mohibi, the former Disability Rights Protection Officer at the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission.

The annual USICD gala brings together disability rights advocates, legislative leaders, new and long-term donors, business and philanthropic leaders, and other friends of the disability rights movement.
