Written by Lisa Friedman, Matan’s Manager of Social Media and Alumni NetworksJewish Disability Awareness Month may be behind us, but we at Matan know that inclusion is not just a month of the year. It isn’t a stand-alone event, it isn’t just an accommodation or two and it isn’t a single classroom in a school.
Inclusion is a way of thinking about and acting toward others. It is a way of ensuring that each and every person can meaningfully engage in any way that he or she wants to participate.
Our closing piece for JDAM was a charge: Let’s Get Started! And that’s exactly what we must do. We must look back at the month of inspiration and use it as a launch pad. Where will your inclusion journey take you from here?
To remind you of some of this inspiration (or maybe you just missed them), here are our ten most popular posts from JDAM 2015:
