At LAMN, we believe that disability and diversity should be celebrated and that we all have unique strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, and that's not just okay, it's beautiful. We believe the representation of disability and inclusion should be focused around light, moving forward, and teaching people that inclusivity is about making a real effort to understand the human experience of ALL people regardless of our differences.
