October 2021 Observances
LGBT History Month- a US observance begun in 1994 to recognize lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history and the history of the gay-rights movement. A marvelous read is Sarah Schulman's Let the Record Show; A Political History of ACT UP in New York 1987-1993.
National Disability Employment Awareness Month- Launched way back in 1945 as Congress declared the first week in October as "National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week." In 1998, it was extended to a month and renamed. The annual event draws attention to employment barriers that continue today. Recommending the documentary Crip Camp, a unique presentation of one group's experience at an upstate summer camp and their subsequent activism.
 

Global Diversity Awareness Month - To celebrate and increase awareness about the diversity of cultures and ethnicities and the positive impact diversity has on society.
