Disability Pride Week 2017 30 November – 5 December 2017

Disability Pride Week 2017 30 November – 5 December 2017

Disability Pride Week 2017 is happening around New Zealand this year from November 30 to December 5 2017. The organisers are calling for disabled people, organisations and community groups to register their events.

Disability Pride Week is about bringing disabled people together to celebrate their common humanity through a variety of activities, sharing our stories and our creativity, say co-covenor Rachel Noble. “Our vision is for Aotearoa New Zealand to be a place where we as disabled people feel proud of ourselves and our country, we welcome and invite you to be part of the week”.

Disability Pride Week incorporates the UN International Day for Disabled People on December 3. The day aims to promote and understanding of disability issues and to mobilise support for the dignity, rights and well-being of disabled people.

The kaupapa for the week is that all the events will:

• Explore or demonstrate Disability Pride

• Disabled people have a lead and/or partnership role in the planning and implementation of the event

• Project Disability Pride to the wider community

• Acknowledge members of the Disability community who have gone

• Be fun and inclusive

This is part growing collective of Disability Pride events around the world.

Contact or for more information and to register your event. Resources will be sent to you and we will promote your event on our website.
