Maryland Philanthropy Network Signs Disability Inclusion Pledge
The last few years have challenged philanthropy and the communities we serve in unprecedented ways, and now more than ever, leadership in the fight for equity, inclusion and social justice matters. The COVID-19 pandemic, economic recession, and racial injustice have shined a light on what we have all known for far too long: people with disabilities have been disproportionately impacted by each crisis, each budget cut, and each rollback of civil rights. Simply put, social justice requires disability inclusion.
To meet the urgency of this moment, Maryland Philanthropy Network has joined the growing list of foundations and colleagues signing onto the Presidents’ Council on Disability Inclusion in Philanthropy Disability Inclusion Pledge and is inviting our members to join us in this important work.
