  5. Support Disabled Creators
  6. Avoid Ableist Terms
  7. Don’t Define Someone Only By Their Disability
  8. Be Kind

You can start my practicing the 8 steps listed above or check them out in full detail where the Includas Superheroes outline each one. You can also get an Includas Coloring Book and Includas Superpowerful Journal to teach you about different disabilities and practice including others. Don’t forget to visit our blog post of the different kinds of disabilities and learn which celebrities are/were Disabled.

Everyone makes mistakes, and it’s okay to make them as long as you learn how fix those mistakes. One person may prefer to be called “disabled” while another doesn’t. People have preferences based on their lived experiences, so get to know each person and don’t assume the same things for everyone. But remember, don’t rely on the disability community to educate you completely, especially if you don’t know someone personally. There is always room to grow and improve, the first step is trying.

Of course you can! Even the smallest change can make the biggest difference. It can change what your friends think, what your family thinks, or what you think. Reading, watching, and listening to things that are inclusive and diverse can help so many people. With your support that you spread to others, you can get the conversation of inclusion and disability started.

The Includas Awards

The Includas Superheroes are searching for allies who spread disability diversity with books. This can be fundraising to purchase disability books to donate to a library or running an awareness event about disability for readers. Help us find amazing allies (coming soon!) and we’ll send them a prize.

There is no deadline to nominate or apply for this award, but recipients for the year will be honored at the INCLUDAS Book Party on December 3. It may take a few months for us to notify winners of the award and each category. For additional info and FAQs, please visit our post (coming soon!).

Help Spread Change, One Book At A Time

We love nothing more than spreading inclusion! That’s why our commitment to social good is important to us. We donate books when we can, but now anyone can help us do so and get more diverse books into the hands of readers.
