We Include is creating a culture of inclusion in workplaces, schools and everyday life.

1 in 4 adults has a disability.

Despite popular misconceptions, disabilities are common. 

Welcome to We Include, an organization created to empower people with disabilities and to advocate for their inclusion in every facet of life.
People with disabilities are awesome, and since 1 in 4 adults has a visible or invisible disability—that’s a lot of people who deserve our attention, respect and admiration.
We Include is inspired by a nonprofit in Tampa Bay, Florida called Help Us Gather (HUG) that helps people with disabilities connect socially and advocates for inclusion. Although the important work at HUG is targeted to a local audience, the response to its mission resonated globally.
HUG’s work to create personal and professional opportunities for people with disabilities became a source of happiness and hope. Its stories were shared by hundreds of news outlets in the United States and throughout the world, prompting people to reach out asking HUG to bring its mission of inclusion and advocacy for people with disabilities to a bigger audience.
We Include was created to do just that.
