Partner Stations of Move to Include

Through television and radio programming, as well as special events, Move to Include is comprised of PBS KIDS programs, prime-time curated TV specials, news and arts features, radio talk shows, social media and online content, and film screenings. 

Move to Include was launched in 2014 as a partnership between WXXI Public Media in Rochester, NY and the Golisano Foundation, the nation’s largest private foundation devoted to supporting programs for people with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities. The Foundation has provided more than $1 million in funding to date for Move to Include.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting recognized the importance of the Move to Include model and awarded WXXI Public Media a grant to expand efforts to five additional public media stations. WXXI Public Media is leading the expansion of the successful six-year multimedia initiative.  Move to Include PBS affiliate stations include: WFYI (Indianapolis), OPB (Oregon), WGCU (Southwest Florida), WCNY (Syracuse, NY), and Iowa Public Television. Each station will organize its own community partnerships, acquire and create content, and provide outreach, engagement, and promotion for the initiative.
