Grassroots Leaders Asked to Join in Fight Against Prejudice
Washington, Nov. 27 – Key national Jewish leaders are helping spread the word that “Ableism”, discrimination against people with disabilities, is unacceptable.
Grassroots advocates – people with disabilities and the people who love and respect them – are invited to join this social media effort to educate and advocate in support of equality and respect!
Activists can download their own copy of the sheet in the photos on our website. Then they can either put their Twitter address, or if they are not on Twitter, then put their name in the space.
Activists are invited to post the photo of themselves with the sign on Facebook and Twitter and tag RespectAbility on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/RespectAbilityUSA and on Twitter using @Respect_Ability and @JewishInclusion. Photos below are just some of the terrific Jewish leaders who have joined this cause!
