Building communities and creating connections through celebration, education and empowerment. 

What is Disability Pride?

Disability Pride is about being happy with who you are and sharing yourself with the people around you!

We have a mission to celebrate and empower the disability community. Having an annual parade increases visibility of people with disabilities and provides an opportunity for people with & without disabilities to celebrate diversity, inclusion and pride.

Let’s celebrate what makes each of us unique and how much we have in common!

If you have comments, ideas, or questions please email us at: Disabilityprideab@gmail.com

We look forward to hearing from you!
