Real Communities: Commitments and Responsibilities

An important privilege of citizenship is the choice to join with others to build a stronger community. The purpose of Real Communities is to learn how to make this choice real for more people with developmental disabilities so that they can exercise the responsibility to act as contributing citizens through membership in a local group that is at work on making their community better for everyone.

A Real Communities initiative accepts four commitments and four responsibilities for learning.
