From Isolation to Participation: Stories from Wisconsin

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This well-known adage applies to communities that embrace the diverse gifts and talents of all their citizens, including those with disabilities. With proper nurturing and care, an inclusive community flourishes and becomes more vibrant, making it a more desirable place for all to live, work and play. They become model communities.

Three communities in Wisconsin, Richland Center, Madison and Milwaukee, went on a journey to become model communities that are welcoming and inclusive of all people, including those with disabilities. This video explores their journeys and explains how recognizing the gifts and talents of all citizens can make every community more inclusive and welcoming.

Thanks Jack - I take no credit for it. It was made by the folks involved with the Model Communities project in Wisconsin - funded through our state Medicaid Infrastructure Grant. And I agree - it's a great video.
