July was officially declared as Disability Pride Month in New York City to celebrate the anniversary of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA). Though not yet nationally declared, the disabled community has adopted New York City’s declaration. According to AmeriDisability, "This annual observance is used to promote visibility and mainstream awareness of the positive pride felt by people with disabilities. Using bold images and strong words, disability pride awareness dates, parades and festivals both uplift and challenge. Pride comes from celebrating our heritage, disability culture, the unique experiences that we have as people with differing abilities and the contributions that we offer society."
