Katie Smith Memorial
The Humanity & Inclusion family is deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Katie Smith, who represented Humanity & Inclusion as a member of a delegation to the United Nations Committee of States Parties (COSP) to the UNCRPD in New York in 2017. Read Katie's reflection on attending that event. She was a member of Humanity & Inclusion's Advisory Council. Katie did great work through the Harkin Summit, attending events in Washington, DC, and Paris, France, ensuring the perspective of young adults with disabilities was at the table.
