Inclucity – Actions towards more inclusion

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

PROVAIL, one of the Washington state’s largest organizations serving people with disabilities, will hold its second annual Inclucity event at Seattle Center's McCaw Hall on Thursday, October 5, 2017.

This evening event aims to bring together the Puget Sound community to highlight individuals and organizations that have been successful in improving inclusion for people with disabilities.

Many local organizations will be present, providing interactive vendor displays to showcase their efforts towards creating more inclusion and accessibility, including:
  • Special Olympics Washington
  • Invacare
  • Easterseals Washington
  • Makers Making Change 
  • Pacific Continental Bank 
In addition to vendor booths, key figures in the disability sector will be speakers, discussing how they experience inclusion in our city and what they are doing to address the lack of inclusion and accessibility.

These “Champions of Inclusion” include:
  • Barry Long, President of Talk and Roll Enterprises 
  • Mike Ronan, President of the Board for Special Olympics Washington 
  • Kristin Adams, Author of The Chicken Who Saved Us

Q13 Fox News Anchor Matt Lorch is excited to be emceeing the event.
“As the parent of a child with physical and intellectual disabilities, I understand creating opportunities for those with developmental challenges starts with better knowledge, access, and understanding. Inclucity is a movement to do just that,” Lorch says.

PROVAIL encourages individuals of all backgrounds to attend, including individuals who are interested in learning more about the disability sector, but may not have a connection to it.

The event will also give attendees the chance to learn how to get involved in breaking down the barriers to create more inclusion for people with disabilities.
