Kats Together

Brayden York and educator Leslie Lewis founded Kats Together, a monthly lunch club to promote inclusion and address disability awareness that breaks down barriers between students at Kokomo High School in Indiana. Kats Together builds community over a meal, while students with and without disabilities engage in fun, community-building activities and learn about important topics such as self-advocacy and inclusion. With the implementation of this club, Brayden and Leslie are working to foster a school environment that celebrates peers for their differences, encourages collaboration, and supports the beginnings of new friendships. In the future, the club aims to take part in group outings to foster unity and build relationships with the wider community.
