Subject: Disability Inclusive Curriculum Legislation
In order to help foster communities inclusive to disabled individuals, I am introducing legislation to mandate the inclusion of the political, economic, and social contributions of disabled individuals in Pennsylvania’s K-12 curriculum.  By teaching our children about influential disabled individuals, such as Harriet Tubman, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Stephen Hawking, and Michael J. Fox, we can demonstrate the profound, positive impact that disabled individuals have had on our society and work to create a more tolerant and inclusive world.

Every student deserves to feel safe and supported in their educational environment.  Please join me in making our schools more inclusive to students with disabilities by co-sponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB1809
