WHY

Individuals with disabilities are often excluded from opportunities that other people have. Many opportunities are offered separately for those with disabilities and those without. Both exclusion and segregation are unfair and unequal, and often lead to isolation, loneliness, and lack of access, skills, or purpose for people with disabilities. Inclusive opportunities lead to equity and excellence for all people.
