Tools, networking and inspiration for parents, professionals and community advocates committed to inclusion and universal design for learning and ending segregation

This is an exciting day for parents, caregivers, and professionals working to end segregation in neighborhood schools and the community at large. Come celebrate and learn how we can use Accessible Instructional materials,  Universal Design for Learning and Best Practices to reach and teach every child. Share, learn and make connections so that we can all go forth to open the eyes of the wider com-munity to
the fact that our children are all born “in”.
