CHANGE THE WORLD… One Mind at a time, if you have to!
CHANGE THE WORLD… • "Empowerment is part psychological, part social, and part political. It is the process by which individuals define their own problems, find their own voice, develop their own plans, act on their own behalf, and claim their own power. Empowerment means more than having responsibility, but also having the authority and ability to make one's own choices." --Unknown
CHANGE THE WORLD… • I'm tired of well meaning noncripples with their stereotypes of what I can and cannot do directing my life and my future. I want cripples to direct their own programs and to be able to train other cripples to direct new programs. This is the start of something big -- cripple power. –Ed Roberts
CHANGE THE WORLD… • “If society could start thinking about the inclusion of people with disabilities in terms of equal opportunity, and as a matter of social justice and not just as accommodating people with disabilities, then you begin to start removing that stigma that comes with the label of a “disability”.” --Belinda Guthrie, Vassar
CHANGE THE WORLD… • “Inclusion is recognizing that we are “one” even though we are not the “same”.” --Shafik Asante
CHANGE THE WORLD… • "Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” --Dalai Lama
CHANGE THE WORLD… • "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not"...Dr. Seuss
CHANGE THE WORLD… • There are many roles. Follow your conscience.– Justin Dart
