It is time to celebrate Disability Pride!

On Sunday, July 15, the NYC Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities and the nonprofit organization, Disability Pride NYC, will be teaming up to host the 2018 Disability Pride Parade. This event, now in its fourth year, promotes the inclusion, awareness, and visibility of people with disabilities.

The parade will proceed from Madison Square Park to Union Square Park beginning at 10:30 a.m. on July 15. In addition, there will be a festival taking place at Union Square Park from noon until 3:30 p.m featuring great food, music, special performances, giveaways, and informational resources.

Here at the DOE, we are proud to support the 2018 NYC Disability Pride Parade, and we invite students, teachers, family members, and DOE staff members to join us. To participate in the parade with the DOE, we encourage anyone who is interested to register on our website.

Questions? Visit NYC’s 2018 Disability Pride Parade webpage or contact the DOE at disabilityprideparade@schools.nyc.gov.

See you on July 15!
