Disability Pride

 
Disability Pride Month
Kenai: Saturday, July 20, 2024
Anchorage: Saturday, July 27, 2024
 

 

July is Disability Pride Month. Thirty-four years ago on July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed by Congress, establishing America’s commitment to end discrimination against people with disabilities. Disability Pride means accepting and honoring each person's uniqueness and seeing disability as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity. Disability Pride awareness events promote visibility and mainstream awareness of the positive pride felt by people with disabilities. Alaska’s Disability Pride Celebration hopes to bring this message to our Alaskan friends and neighbors, and to raise awareness of the significance of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The volunteers coordinating this year’s event represent people with physical/intellectual/developmental disabilities, behavioral health disorders, autism, Down syndrome, traumatic brain injury, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, and more.
