Supporting the exploration of Citizenship & Disability
Nicole met with us at her friend’s house. Together we talked about citizenship and belonging.

What does belonging mean to you? In what communities do you belong?
“Mostly at work because I have friends there. We do potlucks and stuff too which is great.” Nicole enjoys the relationships she’s developed with her co-workers, visiting with them in the mornings, and participating in workplace celebrations such as staff work anniversaries and birthdays.
