USICD Gala to Celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities!

About this Event

The U.S. International Council on Disabilities (USCID) will host its sixth annual gala on December 3, 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 Representative Jim Langevin (D-RI) and to USICD's co-founder Marca Bristo posthumously. The International Advocate award will be presented to Sir Philip Craven MBE, second President of the International Paralympic Committee, from the United Kingdom.

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.
