Support Inclusion Saturday is Around the Corner

Monarch has officially kicked-off its Support Inclusion Saturday 2018 campaign, compiling a registry of businesses and community partners that promote and foster inclusive hiring practices or programming around the state.

Last year, we had over 33 organizations with 61 physical locations join our campaign. This year’s campaign will be celebrated on Saturday, March 24, 2018. 

In observance of National Developmental Disabilities Month, Monarch has invited businesses and organizations across North Carolina to join the grassroots campaign. Approximately 11 percent of persons with I/DD are unemployed in the U.S., despite their willingness and ability to work in the community. Not to mention, only one-third of persons with a disability are employed vs. people without a disability according to The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).   

Support Inclusion Saturday starts a dialogue and champions the organizations who are already doing something to change those statistics. The initiative celebrates stories like Kiara Camp, David Dillard, and Alex Baker, and the companies that provide inclusion opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the state of North Carolina.  

If you know of any businesses or partners who should be part of the registry this year, share the campaign website and encourage them sign up. It’s free!

Monarch staff, people we support and the public are invited and encouraged to shop or support the more than 50 brands, organizations and businesses that will be featured on the campaign registry this year.
