"I am offering this testimonial on behalf of our team at School's Out Washington. Melissa McPheeters facilitated a workshop titled "Unlearning Ableism for Educators" at our annual Bridge Conference in 2021. Workshop appreciations and takeaways from participants included: "It was so wonderful... It made me feel seen and accepted...This session was amazing and I hope to see more of this... I was able to actually get a list of all of the ableism that goes on in the school system and workforce."


We grateful to Melissa for sharing their expertise with us at Bridge!" - School's Out Washington
