Are you wondering about the parade itself? According to the event website:
The overall mission of the Disability Pride Parade is:
- To change the way people think about and define “disability”;
- To break down and end the internalized shame among people with Disabilities; and
- To promote the belief in society that Disability is a natural and beautiful part of human diversity in which people living with Disabilities can take pride.
