 Text saying Disability Pride Month

While not a nationally recognized month, Disability Pride Month has been celebrated in July since 1990.  The first coincided with the signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act on July 29, 1990.  Disability Pride Month is not only an event that celebrates people with disabilities and chronic illnesses it is also about drawing attention to the fight for disability representation and equal rights.
