July is Disabilities Pride Month.
It’s a time for celebration and for introspection. And sometimes it's a time for sadness.
If you’re struggling to know how to feel this month, you’re not alone. One of our favorite activists, Kelly Douglas (who experiences CP) recently shared, “I wonder if I’ll be able to muster up a shred of disability pride to get me through July.”
Like many of us this month, Kelly is wondering, “How do I share everything my disability has given me and still mourn everything it’s taken away?”
That's why we’ll be sharing a spectrum of disability-related experiences this month-- from celebration and pride to grief and annoyance. Because ALL of our experiences are valid!
