“An invitation is not inclusion. I don’t understand why people think that’s all that they have to do then get upset when the disabled person can’t do the thing because nobody cares enough to help create an environment that is actually welcoming and inclusive. Access, accommodations and inclusion are not favors extended to the disabled person and when you treat them like they are, YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG.” Lei Wiley-Mydske

I don’t re-blog content that often, but here’s another share-worthy post from fellow WP blogger Leah Kelley. I think it’s a brilliant way to raise awareness. (Plus my followers all know how much I adore puppets!)
