Inclusion Summit and Inclusive Schools Week

Inclusion Summit and Inclusive Schools Week

Next week is Inclusive Schools Week! Monday-Thursday we encourage schools to participate in daily inclusive lessons and activities. Next Friday, we hope you can join us at the virtual Inclusion Summit, “Understanding and Ending Ableism.” Learn more and register here!

The Summit will take place virtually during National Inclusive Schools Week (December 6-10). Monday-Thursday join schools across the country who are committing to rebuilding inclusive communities. We’re providing NYC schools with themes, lessons, and activities that focus on current disability and inclusion topics. Click here for activities. 

On Friday, NYC students will come together at a virtual event to explore the concept of ableism and hear from guest speaker, Peter Trojic. Peter is an inclusive dancer, actor, accessibility consultant, and NYC schools graduate. He will share his personal stories and lessons learned with disability, inclusion, and ableism.
