Welcome to our special edition of Inclusion Revolution Radio and Spotlight Sessions from Special Olympics and accessiBe. It’s an exclusive series of conversations, where we talk about all things inclusion, sport and accessibility. This episode is brought to you by United Airlines who is a proud partner of Special Olympics' Capitol Hill Day.

In our Season 2 kickoff episode, we were fortunate to host three incredible guests, Haley Waggoner, Rep. Nikki Budzinski (IL-13), and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1), who all played a role in this year's Capitol Hill Day event. It's a day when Special Olympics athletes and leaders meet with Members of Congress and share the amazing impact of their work.

In this episode, our guests discuss:
  1. The value of Capitol Hill Day and political engagement for athletes.
  2. How lawmakers are working to advance access and inclusion for people with disabilities.
  3. The role that sports plays to empower athletes with new communication and leadership skills.
  4. Dismantling stereotypes for people with I/DD.
