Third Annual Disability Pride Parade NYC
On Sunday, July 9th staff from across the agency participated in the Third Annual Disability Pride Parade NYC. We are a proud sponsor of this event, which promotes inclusion, awareness, and visibility of people with disabilities.
The first Disability Pride Parade in NYC took place in 2015, in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The parade is now an annual event and is growing every year. We applaud the opportunity to join with our friends and partners to share in this powerful demonstration of our ongoing commitment to help individuals with disabilities gain equity and economic independence. On Sunday, hundreds of people sought information about vocational rehabilitation from our booth.
Proudly waving our banner, staff representing all facets of the agency joined the march from Union Square Park to Madison Square Park.
