Starting in 1957, the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee (CSAC) was founded to solicit public recommendations for stamp selections. Before CSAC, only one stamp on disability awareness was released. Subjects on disability topics and awareness increased with public recommendations.
Discuss CSAC with students and have them consider a figure with a disability they would like to recommend and explain why. To extend the lesson, they can consider which disability they would like to raise awareness through stamps. Have them explain how CSAC rules apply to their choices.
