July is Disability Pride month! This annual observance is used to promote visibility and awareness of people with disabilities, and it focuses on the pride in celebrating their unique identities. It can be described as “accepting and honoring each person’s uniqueness and seeing it as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity”.
