Otsego Includes statement in response to current events surrounding racial disparity


"Otsego Includes mission is to build a better community for people of all abilities in Otsego County. And we feel it’s important to acknowledge the increased level of discrimination towards those in the disability community who have dark skin. 

A child who has a disability and dark skin is more likely to be tied down, handcuffed, and physically restrained.

An adult who has a mental health need and has dark skin is more likely to be a victim of a violent encounter with law enforcement.

And a person who has dark skin and a disability is more likely to be arrested than a person with light skin and a disability, and much more likely to be arrested than someone without a disability.

Otsego Includes acknowledges the countless stories of aggression towards those with dark skin in the disability community.

Disability Rights are Human Rights & Dark Skin is Not a Crime.”
