July is Disability Pride Month!

What does this mean? Disability pride is defined by individual and community pride in being part of the disability community.

Disability pride is critical as it builds up the confidence to navigate life and not feel ashamed of having a disability. “Disability” is not a negative word. We are proud of who we are, and the barriers we have overcome have only made us stronger. It’s ok to have a disability!

Why is it in July? The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law on July 26th, 1990. Since then the disability community has used the month of July and this important anniversary to celebrate our Disability Pride!

We invite you to stay tuned this month to our social media pages where you can learn more about Disability Pride, discover resources, and educate yourself on the issues that concern people with disabilities.
