About the series
Move to Include was launched in 2014 as a partnership between WXXI Public Media in Rochester, NY and the Golisano Foundation, the nation’s largest private foundation devoted to supporting programs for people with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities. The Foundation has provided more than $1 million in funding to date for Move to Include.
Move to Include is a national initiative that uses the power of public media to promote inclusion. It spotlights people of differing abilities and disability issues – including education, healthcare, housing, recreation, employment and local efforts to support inclusion – through television, radio, news, special events, and social media. The initiative works to inspire and motivate people to embrace different abilities and include all people in all aspects of community life.

The One Take series is made possible with support from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), along with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.
