Opportunity at a Glance: Spark meaningful conversations around disability by building the theme of this contest, Nothing About Us Without Us, into your curriculum. Engage your students in developing visual representations of what the slogan means to them. The words, Nothing About Us Without Us, represent disability rights activists’ and advocates’ insistence on full, meaningful, and equal access and participation in decisions made about any and all aspects of their lives, including education, employment, transportation, health, and independent living opportunities. The contest is open to all Pre-K – 12 grade students. Winning images will be displayed at the DOE booth at the Disability Pride Parade and in Field Support Centers.
