18 Feb The Revolution is InclUSion!
Special Olympics Montana is holding a virtual Inclusion Rally!
For more than 50 years Special Olympics Montana has been fighting for the inclusion of people with Intellectual Disabilities. Schools and community agencies have been very busy building inclusive communities across the state. They stive to serve as a catalyst that will challenge perceptions about people with Intellectual Disabilities, and all people with differences, and demonstrate to the world the power of sport to establish thriving, inclusive communities by transforming attitudes and behaviors. At the very root of inclusion is the crucial need for connection. Connection is not only a relationship, but a shared strength developed between individuals. A strength where two individuals can feel seen, heard, and valued. This past year, we have seen the effects that isolation and exclusion can have on us individually, as a community, as a country, and as a global community. A pandemic, physical distancing, disruptions to the building blocks of social interaction and more have both energized and exhausted us and disconnected us from each other. Schools and agencies across Montana have sent us their photos and videos to help us spread the word of inclusion just as they are. Watch as they show us the power of inclusion and sign a pledge to spread the message of inclusion.
Join us as we come together across the state of Montana to demand a more inclusive world. #InclusionRevolution
