July is Disability Pride Month

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Disability Pride Month is celebrated each July to honour the history, achievements, and struggles of the disability community. Originating in the United States, it has gained recognition across borders, including here in Canada. July is a time for reflection, celebration, and advocacy, and promoting a society where everyone is valued and included.

The significance of Disability Pride Month lies in its dual purpose: to celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of the disability community and to challenge the societal barriers that continue to exist. It’s a time to educate others, promote inclusion, and advocate for equal rights  and opportunities. By highlighting the contributions and capabilities of people with disabilities, we work towards dismantling stereotypes and creating a more inclusive society for all.
