Minutes for consideration

2. From the Ombudsman for the Differently Abled:
Background: “Universal design is the process of creating products and built environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation. Universal design benefits everyone and promotes a more inclusive environment for individuals with disabilities. … Unfortunately, physical and attitudinal barriers limit the full involvement of people with disabilities in their communities. Promoting a more inclusive environment helps to challenge an “ableist” world view by increasing recognition of disability as a diversity factor.  … Designing for universal access from the start prevents the need for more costly and often less pleasing adjustments.” (Source: APA)

Proposed Minute:

Friends seek to guide their activities and their organizations by principles that respect equality of every person and foster community for all through broad participation in the life of our Meetings.  In the 2019 and future gatherings of Intermountain Yearly Meeting of Friends, we will seek to create an inclusive environment that encourages full participation of all in the life of our Yearly Meeting. We seek guidance and recommendations from those who have experience with various accessibility needs and experience with creating universally accessible built environments and programs.
