There is a group of people, who are characterized with social impairment and repetitive behaviors. Sometimes they wear the wrong socks when going outside. And it is often seen as awkwardness.
Of the 7.9 billion world population, we share different skin colors, heights, looks, and personalities, etc. There is a great possibility that we all could be the “different” ones from others in different cases.
In May 2022, together with WABC, WKU initiates a Different Socks Campaign to call for more understanding and support for people with autism (also known as “Children of the Stars”). They may be the ones with disabilities, but remember, Disability is NOT Inability. We are just different.
Let’s put on your different socks and show your support to people with differences. Let’s break the bias and stigma. We are all in for inclusion!
