DISABILITY AWARENESS LITERACY PROGRAM
Disability Network of Mid-Michigan is collaborating with local groups to promote awareness and education in an effort to break stigmas about people with disabilities.
“Our goal is to start conversations about disabilities with children at a young age. We hope to get students thinking about disability as being a natural part of the human condition, to teach acceptance and inclusion, and to increase thinking about diversity.”
- Kelly PeLong, DNMM Executive Director
