3 Things - Tuesday, July 5

It's Disability Pride Month!

  1. Disability Pride Month
    July is Disability Pride Month. If you didn’t know that, to be honest, we’re not surprised! Even though it’s been celebrated by some members of the disability community for over 30 years, even most disabled people still aren’t aware of its existence. So here’s our lowdown on Disability Pride Month and why it matters.

  2. 11 Ways to Celebrate Disability Pride Month (2022)
    A common misconception about Disability Pride Month is that it is trying to steal the spotlight from LGBTQ+ Pride Month. Disability and queerness are not mutually exclusive. The reality of disability is that we live in an infinite amount of intersecting identities. To celebrate disability is to celebrate queerness and vice versa.

  3. To Mark Disability Pride Month and the 32nd Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, HUD Reaffirms Its Commitment to Community Living for Individuals with Disabilities
    The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is using this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to support the rights of individuals with disabilities to integration and community living as upheld in the landmark case,  Olmstead v. L.C. HUD recognizes that quality, accessible, and affordable housing is vital to fulfilling the civil rights of individuals with disabilities and that furthering the goals of  Olmstead is a core part of our mission.
