July 26 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
In the United States, July is Disability Pride Month. 33 years ago on July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law. This historic civil rights law protects the rights of people with disabilities. The1990 enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act extended civil rights protections to persons with disabilities and assured that all Americans would benefit from their talents.
“To me, Disability Pride is many things,” said Jessica Ping-Wild, an American blogger who lives in London. “It’s a chance for disabled people to declare their inherent self-worth, something that isn’t often done by individuals outside of the community.”
