Disability Pride Week 2019
When: Monday 16 September - Sunday 22 September 2019
Where: across Aotearoa New Zealand
Theme: Setting the Agenda
Our vision is for Aotearoa New Zealand to be a place where we as disabled people feel proud of ourselves and our country.
Disability Pride Week is a national event that celebrates our common humanity. Here, disabled people share our stories and creativity through a range of activities to show that we are also citizens. Disabled people make up 25 percent (1.1 million) of the New Zealand population.
"We are New Zealand’s largest minority group and its time to claim our place in society – one where we are included, visible and valued."- Disability Pride Week co-founder Nick Ruane with Rachel Noble.
