Not to be confused with LGBTQIA+ Pride, Disability Pride is an important movement first established over 30 years ago by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). This month we continue to create awareness and celebrate the successes and differences of people with disabilities. Breaking the stigma is central to the movement's message.
Each colour of the flag represents a different meaning:
Black: refers to the colour of mourning for those who have suffered from ableist violence
Blue: represents mental illness
Yellow: represents cognitive and intellectual disabilities
White: stands for invisible/undiagnosed disabilities
Green: represents sensory perception disabilities
Red: represents physical disabilities
Disability Pride is held annually for the full month of July and now receives support across the world. To observe this growing movement, we at Invacare are supporting in different ways.
