Share this page

Join the Biden Administration in commemorating July as Disability Pride Month, an opportunity to listen to and elevate the voices of people with disabilities. Disability Pride Month is inspired by other minority communities, such as Black and LGBTQIA2S+, pride awareness events and is celebrating its 32nd year after the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed on July 26, 1990.

During the month of July, the Administration will hold weekly meetings to hear from Administration officials about the work that they’re doing to ensure access, inclusion and equity for people with disabilities. The White House Office of Public Engagement’s Disability Stakeholder Calls for Disability Pride Month sessions will be held at 2:00 pm ET on July 14, 21 and 28.
