Join Family Resource Center on Disabilities (FRCD) for a day of solidarity, awareness and celebration of disability pride.

Saturday, July 18, 2014
Parade: 11:00 am-12:30 pm
Post Parade Festivities: 12:30 pm

We will meet at the staging area at  401 S. Plymouth Court at 10:15 a.m. Post parade festivities will begin 12:30 p.m. at Daley Plaza at Washington and Dearborn.

There is much to celebrate at this year’s Disability Pride Parade.  The Americans with Disabilities Act turns 25.  The former (retired) senator of Iowa, Senator Thomas Harkin (D), who has been an advocate and a champion of disability rights throughout his service as senator is this year’s Grand Marshall.

The overall mission of the Disability Pride Parade is to change the way people think about and define “Disability”. Now is the time 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.
