About the event
International We Are Not Broken Day is observed every year on January 17th. This day was founded to create awareness around the fact that, despite what society thinks of individuals with a history of physical and emotional trauma, mental illness, amputations, or disorders that seem invisible, they are human beings - our neighbors, our friends, our colleges, and our loved ones. The word ‘broken’ indicates something that is not working, that something is wrong and needs to be fixed. Trauma and disease, however, should not define what or who we are. But giving in to this ‘broken’ tag can easily lead to depression, isolation, and misplaced guilt. International We Are Not Broken Day seeks to end this cycle, challenging societal norms, and has been since it was established in 2019.
