Disability Pride Madison’s Mission:
We are a lively community of people with various abilities, identities and beliefs, who share a passion for promoting disability pride.
Why Celebrate Disability Pride?
We are loud and proud. People with disabilities are the largest and most diverse minority within the U.S. population representing all abilities, ages, races, ethnicities, religions and socio-economic backgrounds. Disability Pride Madison is a platform to publically embrace disability and empower people with all abilities to raise their voice and pursue their dreams.
Every year we commemorate the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA stands as a landmark law that has literally opened the doors for millions of Americans. To learn more about the ADA click here.
About Our Logo
We held a logo design competition in the fall of 2012. Logo designs were presented anonymously at the November 2012 meeting.
Disability Pride Madison volunteer Aiden Caes submitted the winning design. The logo is a circle with the words “Disability Pride” written in American Sign Language, Braille, and broken print circling around the inner part of the circle. The words Disability Pride Madison are printed in capital letters horizontally in the center of the circle. Lines radiating out from the center of the circle to the outer images conjure images of wheel spokes, as well as radiating energy.
