July is recognized as Disability Pride Month in honor of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

This act ensures that those with disabilities can participate in and enjoy all aspects of society.

Awareness and inclusion are extremely important advocacy tools in order to empower those who live with a disability.

Disability Pride Month is a way to bring about the stories of those with disabilities so they can express their experiences and explain further barriers that currently exist.


“Disability is a part of the rich tapestry of human diversity, and something that nearly all of us will experience at some point in our lives,”


“It’s also a significant identity that defines how we experience the world. Yet people with disabilities have been marginalized and misunderstood for generations.”
