Disability Pride is an integral part of movement building and a direct challenge of systemic ableism and stigmatizing definitions of disability. – Disability Community Resource Centre (USA)
Our Mission in a nutshell
In the tradition of Disability Pride, we seek to to reclaim identity, instil pride and reduce stigma. Like other Disability Pride events across the globe, we seek to turn current treatment and attitudes towards disability on their heads. We seek to make our culture one where people with disabilities are welcomed as part of human diversity.
Who we are
The organisers are all volunteers with disabilities living in the Sydney area. We receive basic funding from Inner West Council for our expenses.
