BE AN INCLUSION ADVOCATE
Who do you think of when you hear the word advocate?
Someone holding a sign at a protest or handing out flyers on the sidewalk? Someone actively and enthusiastically engaged in debates and discussions? Someone who dedicates their time, effort, and possibly their life to fighting for change?
Advocates can and do look like this. But advocacy doesn’t have to take a do-or-die, one size fits all approach. It can be as simple as contributing a few minutes of your time, making a single click of a button, or standing up for a friend.
For instance, you are an advocate when:
- You donate money, items, or time.
- You take a little time out of your day to research a cause.
- You share inclusion-positive content on social media or by word of mouth.
- You listen to someone’s needs, or stand up for them if they are being treated unfairly or excluded.
- You educate friends or colleagues about inclusion or disability.
Your efforts, no matter how small, ALWAYS matter.
At its heart, advocacy is simply showing your support for a cause. So educate yourself, get creative and figure out what YOU can do for inclusion!
