pin, Boy Scouts Disability Awareness

Description (Brief)
Pin-back buttons serve many purposes. They are efficient advertising vehicles, handy for fund-raising in support of a cause, concise statements of a person’s beliefs, a form of educational outreach, and convenient ice-breakers for conversation. NMAH has several hundred buttons related to disability, including this one created by the Boy Scouts of America.
