#EverybodyIn: "Shoveling the Ramp" Toward Inclusion

More and more, educators, innovators, and artists are looking for ways to eliminate these obstacles for students with disabilities by building "ramps" towards inclusion. Andrea Moore, a Denver artist and the executive director for the local nonprofit, The Wayfaring Band, shares her organizations core values, best practices and some memorable moments on their radical journey to promote inclusion and celebrate neurodiversity.

Your finished product will either be a half-floral ($15) or full-floral ($25) wreath which can be restored with fresh flowers again and again.
