Parade & Festival Photos
Fighting for the rights of people with disabilities, particpants came to today's festival in San José in fun and funky clothes--purple pride t-shirts and fantasy costumes. The mission of Disability Pride Day is to change the way people think about and define “disability”. Disability activists want 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.
