The “Defying All Odds: Diverse by Design” Fashion Show is an event created in honor of the Mid-Del People First Chapter. This is a self-advocacy group run by, and for, people with disabilities. Their mission is to change negative perceptions of the disabled and show the community that people with disabilities
are just like everyone else. They can learn, work, make decisions, and make contributions within their community. They are citizens with the same rights as every other member within the community. These members are truly defying all odds and they are certainly diverse by design.
