2021 Virtual Disability Pride Celebration

July 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AKDT

July is Disability Pride Month! 31 years ago on July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed by Congress, establishing America’s commitment to end discrimination against people with disabilities. Disability Pride means accepting and honoring each person’s uniqueness and seeing disability as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity. Disability Pride awareness events promote visibility and mainstream awareness of the positive pride felt by people with disabilities. Alaska’s Virtual Disability Pride Celebration hopes to bring this message to our Alaskan friends and neighbors, and to raise awareness of the significance of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

What: This online event happens over the course of five days, with each day featuring a different nationally-recognized guest speaker and an interview between the guest speaker and an advocate interviewer.
When: July 26-30, 2021 (Monday through Friday)
Times: 12:00-1:00pm, AK Time
