Share your Acceptance Story!!

We believe that the greatest barrier to acceptance is misunderstanding. By sharing your acceptance story, we can provide people the opportunity to learn and grow through understanding.

What is an acceptance story, and how can you share it?

Your acceptance story can be anything that you believe will help people better understand the differences that we all share.
