Our Doors Are Open booth at Parliament of the World's Religions 2018


The Open Your Doors “community-inclusion” workshop is designed specifically to help individual faith-communities. It enables communities to develop what we call “inclusive thinking,” reach out to their members with disabilities, engage those members in full participation, discuss ways to create accessible media and communications, which will allow them to assess the physical and social inclusivity of a faith-community.
