An acronym for the Voice Of Inclusion for Children Everywhere, Mikayla’s Voice is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that inspires kids of all abilities to share the message of inclusion. Having never spoken a word, with the help of other children, Mikayla is using her “voice” to:
- Inspire children and young adults to embrace individuals of all abilities.
- Empower them to create cultural change by teaching others to include everyone.
- Educate our community about the meaning and importance of inclusion.
“I will never forget Mikayla. I will be her voice.”
