A FUTURE WHERE DIVERSITY IS EMBRACED FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO THE SMALLEST TOWN COUNCILEquity inclusion, accessibility, environmental justice: these are not just words on a page.
They are basic rights for all.All design, housing, parks, policy -- must serve all equally.
Disability is my closest window to the minority experience.But each day, especially in these turbulent times, we ALL must focus on leveling the playing field.
All of us must ensure a fair shake is being given regardless of disability, race, ethnicity, gender, gender preference, income, age, etc.
As the Thanksgiving weekend draws to a close, I am thankful for the many people working to make inclusion a reality to set policy that ensures equity to create master plans that address environmental justice.
