Join the Dialogue
Dialogue on Disability: The Herman & Margaret Schwartz Community Series is made possible through funding by the Fred L. Emerson Foundation. The week-long series is part of a year-round partnership between Al Sigl Community of Agencies, WXXI, and The Golisano Foundation.
The partnership, called Move to Include, raises awareness about education, healthcare, housing, recreation, employment and local efforts to support inclusion – through television, radio, news, special events, and social media. The initiative works to inspire and motivate people to embrace different abilities and include all people in all aspects of community life. In 2019, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting funded the expansion of Move to Include to five additional public media stations around the nation.
