The month of July holds a two dates that celebrate freedom, but many people only know about July 4th (Independence Day in the United States). There’s another date that signifies freedom and independence for people with disabilities in the US: July 26th, the anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act. But why stop at just one day?
July has been celebrated as Disability Pride & Awareness Month since at least 2015, taking the celebration of the ADA beyond just one day–and beyond just the United States. Keep an eye on our website & social media all through July to see what we’ve got in store for celebrating Disability Pride Month!
