#UnifiedGeneration Review

“Evan and Jason Hallberg are brothers who attend Ponaganset High School in Rhode Island. Ponaganset High School is a Unified Champion School, and Evan and Jay play large roles in the school’s inclusion movement. Unified Sports allows Jay to be protected since the students who play know that, regardless of intellectual disabilities, everyone is equal. This video was heartwarming to watch because of the brothers’ close-knit relationship.” –  Ilana Drake, UCS Correspondent (New York)
