PERSPECTIVES | December 27, 2017
True inclusion for people with disabilities requires that we work together to make life physically and socially accessible.
As you make your resolutions for 2018, consider these five ways you can support and advocate for inclusion for people with disabilities:
VOLUNTEER - Volunteer for organizations and events that support people with disabilities.
VOTE - Vote for those whose policies support the rights of people with disabilities. Know your candidates!
SPEAK OUT - Attend community meetings on disability issues and help educate your peers.
SPEAK UP - If you hear someone speaking negatively about people with disabilities, say something! If you witness someone being mistreated or discriminated against because of their disability — at work, on the bus, in a store — speak up!
