A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Unified Theater, the program that provided me with my first inclusive experience. In February, Unified Theater hosted #LOVEinclusion month to build excitement around inclusion and the ways it has affected our development. Now, I know we are a couple of days late, but we at KIT decided to share all that we love about inclusion, too, to make sure everyone knows what fires us up to do this work every day!
