Help remove the barriers by:
Encouraging the participation of individuals with disabilities in community activities by using accessible meeting and event sites.
Speak up when negative words or phrases about disabilities are used.
Understand children's curiosity about disabilities and people who have them. By scolding curious children about the questions they may ask about individuals with disabilities, may cause them to think that having a disability is "bad."
Accept people with disabilities as individuals capable of the same needs and feelings as yourself. If you are a business owner, consider hiring qualified persons with disabilities whenever possible.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” –Margaret Mead
