Annual Conference Sessions Dedicated to to Disability Awareness

The following petition was approved at the 2012 GC to raise awareness of people with disabilities in the church: 

Each Conference shall designate that at least one Annual Conference session during the 2013-2016 quadrennium will have a theme centered on Disability Awareness to set an example for each District and Local Church.  Resources and guidance are available from the Committee on Disability Ministries (currently the United Methodist Task Force on Disability Ministries – see separate petition for name change) and UMCOR Health/Health and Welfare Ministries.  

This is a very important step forward in raising awareness about issues related to people with disabilities.
