Frequently Asked Questions
What is disability pride?
"People with disabilities are the largest and most diverse minority within the population representing all abilities, ages, races, ethnicities, religions and socio-economic backgrounds.

Disability Pride is an integral part of movement building, and a direct challenge of systemic ableism and stigmatizing definitions of disability."
