well said Ibram X. Kendi

“Americans are deeply divided—and we’re deeply divided over why we’re deeply divided. To be antiracist is to recognize and challenge racism as the source of the racial divide. To be racist is to deny racism and frame those challenging racism as the source of the racial divide.”

We Need Inclusive Leaders Right Now More Than Ever

"As a leader, taking a stance that you don't value diversity, equity, and inclusion training would most certainly impact your bottom line....Instead, buckle up and take courageous action on your inclusion journey, knowing that you will likely feel turbulence before a smooth ride."

There's never been a time where more people were interested in learning, or more was at stake.

Great virtual event TODAY at 12NOON from Daemen College. "Why Diversity Matters in Healthcare." Now more than ever, the role of healthcare professionals is crucial to our communities. That's why the presence of medical professionals who represent our diverse society is key to improving patient access and delivery of culturally competent patient care. An increasingly diverse population requires representation, delivery of quality care, and professionals who understand and embrace the importance of diversity and inclusion in their work.

Please share with you networks thank you BJ You're Invited: Join Us for a Zoom Celebration of the ADA's 30th Anniversary this coming Tuesday Dear Fellow Self-Advocates and Friends, The 30th Anniversary of the ADA is right around the corner and to mark the occasion we are hoping you will join SANYS, along with Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul and OPWDD Commissioner Theodore Kastner, to reflect on what the ADA has meant for us as people with disabilities and unveil a social media campaign to further raise awareness about disability rights. This live event will be open to the public and the media. The theme of our celebration is "ADA30: It’s Personal" because we feel that although the ADA is far reaching in its scope, it is also very personal to each and every person with a disability. The event will be moderated by our own B.J. Stasio and several of our members will be sharing their stories live as panelists on the call. So please mark your calendar for Tuesday, July 21 from 1:00 PM-1:45 PM The Celebration will be streamed live on the Lieutenant Governor's page at https://www.facebook.com/ltgovhochulny/ , on SANYs page https://www.facebook.com/SelfAdvNYS/ and on OPWDD’s page https://www.facebook.com/NYSOPWDD/ We hope you will tune in on Tuesday as we celebrate this landmark law that has improved so many of our lives in ways too numerous to mention. We also hope you'll join us in raising awareness by sharing your own personal stories about what the ADA has meant to you. Be sure to use the hashtags #ADA30ItsPersonal and tag @NYSOPWDD @ltgovhochulny and @SANYS so our message reaches as many people as possible. See you on Tuesday!
