|Subject:||Recognizing June 21 - 30, 2021, as "Disability Pride Week"|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution declaring June 21 through June 30, 2021, as Disability Pride Week in Pennsylvania. This week is designed to change the way people think about and define “disability.”
Disability pride is about accepting and honoring each person's uniqueness and seeing it as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity. It rejects the notion that certain physical, mental, or cognitive differences are negative or wrong and promotes acceptance, dignity and pride.
This year, Disability Pride PA will include 10 days of accessible and inclusive virtual programs, including raising the National ADAPT flag and a virtual parade.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important resolution and help all residents of the Commonwealth understand and celebrate the uniqueness and pride in all of us, despite our abilities.
