. . . and join our Network of people working to make Kalamazoo a community where everyone belongs. We have been meeting on the fourth Monday of the month from 9 – 11AM at the Maple St. YMCA. One thing we are beginning to use is Facebook as a way to let people know what is going on in Kalamazoo. Connecting through Facebook we can invite each other to join us if we are attending community events. Another project we have started is to develop a checklist for community businesses and organizations to use to as a tool to help them welcome, support and respect people with disabilities. Our Network is committed to Kalamazoo becoming a place where everyone is responsible for including everyone in community life, but sometimes we all need support to make that happen.
One last thing – our Network needs a name. Please share your ideas by commenting on this blog post!
