A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
Why do we picture symbols and schedules to support people with diverse abilities?
Today this skeleton key is a reminder of an era where locking people away was an accepted social policy. Thankfully, consistent advocacy has resulted in community inclusion being the accepted social policy. Inclusion is based on the belief that, when we include everyone in our community, we all benefit. People with developmental disabilities bring unique gifts and talents to the table, and when they are allowed to share them, everyone benefits. Through the continued advocacy of organizations and individuals, we can continue to move forward, unlock the power of inclusion, and create a world where everyone has access to the key that unlocks their full potential.
Black History Month
Diversity is one of the most important aspects of community service. It allows for different people from all walks of life and cultures to come together and share their experiences and knowledge. This can lead to a better understanding of different cultures in our community and within our organization.
