Disability Pride Month

Disability Pride MonthSince its inception in 1990, Disability Pride Month has been a vibrant celebration that honors disabled individuals, their unique identities, culture, and invaluable contributions to society. This month-long observance aims to challenge existing perceptions and definitions of disability, while also combating the stigma surrounding it. It advocates for the recognition that disability is a natural and beautiful aspect of human diversity, deserving of celebration and pride.

  • People with disabilities make up about 15% of the world's population.
  • In the United States, they constitute the largest and most diverse minority, representing approximately 26% of the adult population.
