Disability Pride


Disability Pride Month is celebrated in July to mark the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a landmark legislation that was passed on July 26, 1990. The federal law protects the rights of people with disabilities by eliminating barriers to their participation in many aspects of living and working in the US.

Disability Pride

Disability Pride Month is an opportunity to promote visibility and awareness of the disability community and celebrate the unique experiences of people with disabilities with pride.

In the United States, 25% of us are living with a disability, yet discrimination still exists. This can be the result of not understanding or the fear of not knowing what to say, how to act, or how to behave, which can lead to avoiding the word disability altogether. Check out the Easterseals SoCal Campaign, Disability Is Not A Dirty Word and join us as we say it, celebrate it, and share it.
