SLN Celebrates National Siblings Day 2022

National Siblings Day is an unofficial holiday observed each year on April 10 to honor the bonds between brothers and sisters. This National Siblings Day, SLN is celebrating and recognizing the power of sibling support. How do siblings support each other? How does the sibling community support each other? We encourage you to share your story on social media on April 10 and tag us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. #NationalSiblingsDay #SibLove 

We’ve even created fill-in-the-blank templates for you to use on Instagram stories.

The fun doesn’t stop there, because we’re celebrating siblings all month long! In addition to sharing your story on social media, we have a number of events in April that provide opportunities for siblings of people with disabilities to connect, including film festivals, virtual workshops and peer support gatherings.
