Disability Pride Month

Disability Pride Month celebrates the achievements and contributions of people with disabilities. The celebration takes place in July to commemorate the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the United States on July 26, 1990. The ADA was a landmark piece of legislation that prohibited discrimination against people with disabilities and mandated accessibility accommodations in various aspects of public life, including employment, transportation, and public accommodations.

The concept of disability pride emphasizes self-acceptance, self-determination, and the celebration of diversity within the disability community. Disability Pride Month serves as an opportunity to raise awareness about disability rights issues, challenge stereotypes and stigma, and promote inclusivity and accessibility for all individuals.
