Isn’t it wonderful when everyone is included?
Members of our community who help to include everyone in any part of our community will be honored at the 11th Annual Community Inclusion Awards and we need your help to tell us about them. If you know someone in Braintree, whether they are a community member, parent, student, coach, employer, teacher or anyone you know who includes everyone, especially those with different abilities or challenges in any aspect of our community, please consider nominating them for this award. The recipients of this award will be honored on Thursday May 23rd at a celebratory event at Braintree Town Hall hosted by Mayor Joseph C. Sullivan.
True inclusion means that ALL community members are actively participating in town wide opportunities alongside their peers. Including everyone creates a sense of belonging because all people have regular access to their community and produces an atmosphere that values acceptance, diversity and the wellbeing of all.
Each year, the committee receives so many wonderful nominations and although we are enlightened and moved by the many ways inclusion is working in our community, we sadly cannot recognize every single one. The committee encourages those who have submitted nominations that may have not been chosen to consider nominating a deserving member of our community again this year.
