Humanity & Inclusion was thrilled to be part of this year's Disability Pride Parade in New York City! Thanks to all who stopped by our booth to say hello. We really enjoyed catching up with old friends and making new ones!
We're so grateful to Greyston Bakery for sponsoring our special giveaway: brownies! They were a hit! Just up the road in Yonkers, Greyston hires people with disabilities and other individuals who face barriers to employment. As Mike Brady, the CEO and President says, "We don't hire people to bake brownies, we bake brownies to hire people." With inclusion at the core of our DNA, HI couldn't be more excited about this new partnership.
