About the Disability Inclusion Pledge

The COVID-19 pandemic, economic recession, and racial injustice have shined a light on the urgency of including disability in social justice work. As foundations and philanthropy-serving organizations, we must engage on a learning journey that centers the perspectives of disabled people and we must deepen our understanding of disability as a natural part of the human experience. Will you join us on the journey to disability inclusion by committing to the eight action items in the Pledge?
