Spread the Word is founded on an audacious belief, a simple observation, and an urgent goal.

  • Our belief is that the world would be better if all people were valued, respected, embraced, included. Included in the games we play and the friends we make. Included in our schools, our workplaces and our communities.

  • Our observation is that despite the best efforts of many, groups around the world remain left out. One of these groups is people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a group made of more than 200 million people representing every country, belief system, sexual orientation, gender expression, race and ethnicity.

  • Our goal is to disrupt this cycle of isolation and exclusion with grassroots action for inclusion.
