July is Disability Pride Month
Disability Pride Month is an annual celebration of disability pride, resilience, and visibility in remembrance of the passing of the Americans with Disability Act on July 26th, 1990. Disability Pride is about celebrating people and their abilities and honoring the history, achievements, experiences, and triumph of disability communities. Allies for disability inclusion can work to better understand the needs of underrepresented groups. We must work together to interrupt structures of shame and ableism in our city.
The disability community is the nation's most diverse minority group. Across the disability community, people have unique experiences, identities and needs. Ensuring people with disabilities can participate fully is critical for diversity, equity and inclusion. Saint Paul Public Library is dedicated year-round to ensuring library spaces and programs can be enjoyed by everyone.
