Re:Action4Inclusion empowers young change makers to work in partnership with adult allies to dispel negative biases that are often associated with people who have an intellectual disability.

Re:Action4Inclusion encourages high school students from across Ontario to take a stand and to play a role in shifting the cultural attitudes within the culture of their school. This movement is encouraging youth to rally others in their school in an effort to build a stronger sense of community and belonging.

MISSION

Ensuring students who have an intellectual disability don’t get left behind and are authentically included. Creating an inclusive Ontario or all youth but more specifically youth with an intellectual disability.

Re:Action4Inclusion seeks to empower youth to take action individually and collectively to make our schools and communities more inclusive spaces. The Re:Action4Inclusion Movement specifically seeks to raise the consciousness of citizens of Ontario to challenge negative perceptions of disability and believes that society can reach its fullest potential and be the best it can be when people of all diversities and abilities learn to appreciate what individuals can do for one another.

“They can create change in the culture of their school and that change does not have to be created strictly by school boards, principals or teachers, but can be achieved by the students themselves.”

“Having the experience of meeting youth leaders that have a disability and seeing how successful they are, once given the opportunity to succeed, the students are able to see the potential that all youth have, with or without a disability.”
