During the month of March, people living with cerebral palsy, as well as family members and activists, come together to advocate for the cerebral palsy community.

Cerebral palsy is a permanent disability that impacts a person’s mobility and muscle strength. More than one million people in the U.S. are living with cerebral palsy, and approximately 10,000 babies are diagnosed every year.

The goal of National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month is to push for positive change in education programs, the health care system, and the job market to provide more opportunities to those living with this disability. One of the most popular ways to show your support for National Cerebral Palsy Month is to wear the color green.

Here are some other things you can do to show your support for the cerebral palsy community this month:

  • Advocate for more research funding by writing letters to government officials using the GoGreen4CP template
  • Donate to organizations such as the United Cerebral Palsy of Nevada to support the community
  • Encourage people to learn more about cerebral palsy on National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day on March 25
  • Help advocate for more accessibility accommodations in public spaces so people with cerebral palsy have more freedom
  • Share photos and stories about cerebral palsy online using the hashtag #GoGreen4CP
