Pathways to Powerful Inclusion-Session I

Friday, September 28, 2018, 1:00 AM

This is the first of three sessions to share about and discuss important aspects of beginning and developing disability inclusion efforts in faith communities. The information in these sessions, paired with notes taken from contributing discussion at the events, will be the basis for Pathways to Powerful Inclusion-A Guide for Congregations.  We are grateful to the Hampton Roads Community Foundation  for awarding FIN a grant to put on all three of these events.  Session I-Introduction: What exactly is disability and what's so important about inclusion? This session will explore the reasons why a congregation should be encouraged to develop inclusive efforts and what we need to understand about disability to be effective in these efforts. We will begin with an overview of what constitutes a “disability” whether it be mental or physical, cognitive, or developmental and the challenges facing individuals and families affected by disability and move into a discussion of the importance of making significant inclusive efforts in our faith communities.
