Inclusion Day 2021

Monday, March 1, 2021 is Inclusion Day so grab your orange attire – masks count too! – and start posting your inclusion pride! Join Summit DD in painting the county ORANGE to kick off DD Awareness Month and promote community inclusion.

We’ve also partnered with the Akron Zoo again for Inclusion Day. Get in for FREE Saturday-Monday (February 27- March 1, 2021) by just wearing orange! Please note, due to COVID-19 restrictions and reduced capacity, FREE tickets must be reserved on the Akron Zoo’s website ahead of time (using the promo code IncludeMe). Get details about Inclusion Day at the Zoo.

Inclusion is about sharing experiences. So don’t forget to share pics of you and your school, co-workers or friends wearing orange (socially distanced, of course!) and tag us – @SummitDD on Facebook or Twitter. We want to see your inclusion pride! #IncludeME
