Disability Pride Month 2023: Promoting Everyday Inclusivity

Published by gdgmanage

The ADA, a significant law passed on July 26, 1990, has helped improve the rights of people with disabilities in the United States. This landmark law known as the Americans with Disabilities Act, prohibited discrimination and ensured equal access to public spaces, transportation, employment, and essential services.

Now, the ADA anniversary in addition to the entire month of July is recognized as Disability Pride Month. It serves as a reminder of the significance of such legislation. It also reminds us that ongoing work is needed to create a more inclusive and accessible society.


As July draws to a close, it is essential to consider how we can celebrate disability pride month throughout the entire year.

Advocate for Accessibility:

A crucial step in promoting inclusivity is to encourage and support initiatives that enhance accessibility in our communities. This includes advocating for accessible infrastructure, transportation, public spaces, and digital content. By actively endorsing accessibility measures, we contribute to a more inclusive environment that accommodates the needs of people with disabilities.

Support Disability Organizations:

Get involved with local or national disability organizations that work tirelessly towards empowerment and advocacy. Your support can help people with disabilities in many ways, such as volunteering, fundraising, or spreading awareness about their needs.

Engage in Disability-Inclusive Media:

Support and engage with media that portrays people with disabilities in diverse and positive ways. Seek out movies, TV shows, books, and online content that offer authentic representations of individuals with disabilities. By doing so, we promote a more accurate understanding and appreciation of their experiences.

Attend Events and Workshops:

Throughout the year, various events, workshops, and seminars related to disability awareness and inclusion take place. Attending these gatherings broadens your knowledge and demonstrates support for the disability community.

Encourage Empowerment:

Celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of individuals with disabilities within your social circle and beyond. Encourage their passions and pursuits, while recognizing their abilities instead of focusing on limitations. This positive reinforcement fosters an environment of empowerment and self-worth.

Be an Ally:

Help disabled people by listening, empathizing, and fighting against discrimination and ableism when you come across it. Being a reliable ally by listening to the disability experience is crucial to promote a more supportive and understanding society.

Embrace Universal Design:

If you are involved in designing spaces or products, consider raising awareness of universal design principles. These principles ensure that spaces and products are accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities, promoting equal opportunities for all.

Educate Yourself and Others:

Take the time to educate yourself and those around you about disability rights, challenges, and the experiences of people with disabilities. This includes learning about updated language to use, understanding barriers faced by those seeking disability help from the government, and exploring forms of disability justice you can actively support.

Be Active & Talk About It:

Engaging in open and respectful conversations about the issues faced can lead to a better understanding. This will help more people become active and have the ability to advocate alongside disability activists.

Celebrating disability pride is not limited to one month; it’s a commitment we must uphold throughout the year. By practicing inclusivity in our daily lives, we can collectively create a positive and lasting impact on society. Embracing their diverse experiences and promoting accessibility ensures a society where everyone is valued and included.
