Get Together at the Great New York State Fair!

Get together right now
People enjoying their time together

Inspired by the 1960s song “Get Together,” the newest community inclusion campaign by OPWDD is about encouraging people to get together in their communities to achieve full inclusion for EVERYONE.

We are all one community, one state, one nation. Each one of us has a role in building a future that embraces everyone’s unique contributions and abilities, and focuses on our similarities rather than our differences.

Now is the time to get to know one another, work together, grow together. The power of people will help us Get Together.
