JCC Association Leads Disability Inclusion Programming in February
JCC Association will hold events throughout the month for Jewish Disabilities Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month

NEW YORKJCC Association of North America will mark Jewish Disabilities Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month (JDAAIM) with a number of programming and events for professionals in the JCC Movement and public audiences throughout the month of February.

With a long-held commitment to inclusion, JCC Association is proud to be a leader among community-based organizations focused on Jewish disability advocacy. While JCC Association’s dedication to this vitally important work extends beyond just the month of February, JDAAIM activities and resources are essential to our commitment.

JCC Association is hosting a virtual conversation on Fostering Inclusive Workplaces with Emily Ladau, disability rights activist, and Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer, activist and educator, on Thursday, February 23 at 3 p.m. ET. It is open to the public and prior registration is required.

More details about the events will be made available on the website. JCCs across the continent will also host their own events and opportunities.
