The Pledge

The Pledge for Inclusion initiative unifies organizations and individuals who are committed to creating a world where people with special needs and developmental disabilities are fully included in all aspects of life – in the classroom, the workplace and in our communities. Through this collaborative public awareness and advocacy initiative, we aim to educate and inform Californians about the importance and value of inclusion for everyone.

I pledge to Accept, Respect, and Include people of ALL abilities, including my peers with special needs and disabilities. Inclusion starts with ME!

  • I ACCEPT  people of all abilities
  • I RESPECT others and act with kindness and compassion
  • I INCLUDE people with special needs and disabilities in the classroom, in the workplace and in my community.
