This is What Disability Looks Like

New York hosted its first Disability Pride Parade on Sunday with over 3,000 participants.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio kicked off the event with remarks, saying "We will roll and ride and walk together for a more just New York City."

Former U.S. Senator Tom Harkin, who sponsored the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) 25 years ago, served as grand marshal. "I may be retired from the Senate, but I'm not retired from the fight," he said. "We know that when companies hire people with disabilities they get the best workers, the most loyal workers, the most productive workers."

Earlier in the month, Mayor de Blasio declared July as "Disability Pride Month" in honor of the 25th anniversary of the ADA, which aims to guarantee equal opportunities and rights for people with disabilities.

The event was a public celebration for a community that often remains hidden and invisible.
