As a new coalition, we salute all the brave and committed individuals and organizations that have already been fighting for the educational and social rights of children with disabilities in Washington, DC and around the United States. Our goal is to compliment these efforts and develop a more concentrated vehicle that serves as the necessary grassroots, parent-led body that’s actively engages with the schools, lawmakers and public educational administrators in the District of Columbia for the benefit of all levels of public education.
Break the Silence and Isolation
While parenting in general is hard work with equal rewards, the life-style of parents with children with disabilities is very different than that of any other parent. Joining the Inclusive Prosperity Coalition gives opportunity for parents with children with disabilities the safe space to be heard and feel supported by a diverse network of other self-advocates, parents (both of children with and without disabilities), educators, legal experts and organizations that offer a plethora of resources to assist in the necessary empowerment to improve the quality of life for the District’s children with disabilities.
Information and Skills Sharing
Through a weekly newsletter, bi-weekly conference calls and goals of growing capacity to host monthly face-to-face meetings, with child care provided, the Inclusive Prosperity Coalition offers a network of skill-building training and information channels to help parents grow in their ability to provide better at-home and in-community support for our children with disabilities as well as be better equipped to hold the public education system accountable.
Through campaigns to actively engage legislators and public education administrators, the Inclusive Prosperity Coalition is growing an active action-driven network of local, regional and national supporters who understand that if Washington, DC, as the nation’s capital, becomes a leading example of exceptional special education services and outcomes for children with disabilities.
