What is Disability Pride Month?

Disability Pride celebrates people with disabilities and disability as an identity, honoring the community and culture. The initiative aims to directly challenge systemic ableism and discrimination faced by those with a disability, centering disabled experiences.

Disability Pride means different things to different people: to honor early activists, recognition that their disability is intrinsic to their self, celebrating disability visibility in public spaces, and more. Learn more from disabled people and self-advocates on social media by searching #DisabilityPride and #DisabilityPrideMonth.
