I am Norm is a youth-created, youth-led movement formed to ignite change and committed to a world where people of various abilities have equal opportunities.

 With I am Norm, YOU can make a difference.

Attend this workshop and learn how you can join youth from all over the nation who are working to redefine “normal” and make their communities more inclusive.

At this workshop, you will:

  • Work together to challenge “normal”, and create your own terms for promoting acceptance in your communities
  • Learn how to become advocates and leaders, with tools that you can use to make your own clubs and groups inclusive. Take it back with you, and your club could become part of our national network* of New Norm Clubs!
  • Make your own I am Norm video to show what you’ve learned and to promote inclusion nation-wide. Your video could end up being featured on our website!*

*Privacy release forms are required before any youth’s image or information can appear on I am Norm’s website or networks.


Workshop Facilitator:


Kristin began working with people with disabilities at a young age.    While in the third grade, she regularly went to help her peers in a self-contained special education classroom at her school during her lunch recess time. By the eighth grade, she began volunteering weekly for a program that provides equestrian therapy to individuals with disabilities, Stable Influence Charity Programs, which she still stays involved with (when in her hometown of Phoenix) today. In high school, she was a peer tutor for students with disabilities for two years, earning elective credit for attending general education classes with students with disabilities to help them be fully included. It was at this point that Dougherty became an advocate for inclusion, and she began attending many trainings and conferences on inclusive practices to learn more. She helped co-found a club at her high school to organize inclusive after-school and recreational activities for all students at her school, which the club members named the “Friends Club”. She became a member of TASH and of the Arizona WINS Leadership team. Shortly after, she applied to attend the National Youth Summit. She was accepted and attended the summit, becoming one of the creators and founding members of the national I am Norm campaign in January 2009.

Today, Kristin is working there as a peer mentor for students with intellectual disabilities. Kristin is currently working on earning double degrees, a B.S. in Special Education and Rehabilitation, and a B.A. in Women and Gender Studies: Sexualities and Queer Studies Concentration.
