N.Y. Celebrates With Parade and Festival

Following a tradition that started in the 1990s, New York City will once again hold a Disability Pride Parade, this year on Sunday, July 14. Participants will step off at Madison Square at 11 a.m. and proceed down Broadway to Union Square where the annual festival will begin at noon and continue on until 3 p.m.

The original celebration was called the Disability Independence Day March (DIDM) and was revived in 2015 when a group including organizations and individuals from all boroughs joined together to make it happen.

With the help of the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities the parade has grown each year with the 2018 event drawing more than 6,000 participants.

Many cities around the country and the world are now holding Disability Pride Parades
