for joining the
Best Buddies New York
Special Olympics New York
and making our first-ever Festival of Inclusion and our 11th annual Spread the Word Inclusion day a great success! Thousands of people are benefitting from your hard work and commitment to
spreading dignity and compassion in all aspects of our daily lives
Now, let's continue the movement to
encourage others to pledge to respect, accept and advocate for inclusive words and actions to end discrimination of individuals with intellectual disabilities. It starts with each of us – at home, at work, at school, at play, and in our communities – to value and respect everyone and include them in our lives. No one wants to be excluded. We have so much to learn from people who have different abilities and interests. Together we can make a world of difference.
