“Inclusion is not a strategy to help people fit into the systems and structures which exist in our societies; it is about transforming those systems and structures to make it better for everyone. Inclusion is about creating a better world for everyone.”
Diane Richler, Past President, Inclusion International
To learn and teach about meaningful inclusion in education as well as in communities, and to support, encourage, and advise each other as we advocate for inclusion for all.
Who we are
We are a grassroots network in Washington State and an intentional community of disabled individuals, parents and caregivers of disabled individuals, professionals who work in education, and other interested community members who recognize full, meaningful inclusion as research-based best practice and as such, a shared goal.
We wish to sustain a safe, disability proud and disability positive space.
Our founding values are Disability Rights, Disability Justice, Disability Pride and solidarity.
What we do
We find and make connections, big and small, for Washington State stakeholders. We host free workshops and give free presentations in Washington State. Our topics range from Inclusive Education 101 and Universal Design 101 to How to be an Effective Ally and From Ableism to Acceptance.
If you would like to have us present or host a workshop, contact us for details.
We also host a Facebook community and offer free individual IEP support around gaining an inclusive placement pending on availability of partners.
