July 2024 is Disability Pride Month in Ramsey County

The  board of commissioners declares July 2024 as Disability Pride Month in Ramsey County.

Disability Pride Month is celebrated in July to acknowledge that the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was signed into law on July 26, 1990. Nearly one in four people have a disability and people with disabilities are diverse and have intersectional identities. People with disabilities should not be seen as existing “without” but rather as individuals who enriches the many diverse Ramsey County communities.

The County recognizes that Disability Pride Month is a time for people with disabilities to unapologetically celebrate their bodies as they are. Ramsey County residents who have a disability or residents who are allies, Disability Pride Month is full of much to celebrate.
