Ensure Inclusion (81299-GA-¶705.3i)

Add a sentence at the end of ¶ 705.3i:  At least one person with a disability, clergy or laity, must be included on each general board.  

Rationale

United Methodists claim concern for all persons. Persons with disabilities are represented in all racial, ethnic, and economic groups. Approximately 51.2 million Americans have a disability, including four million children age 6-14, and many troops serving in our armed forces are returning with severe disabilities.
