Disability Pride Week is an international annual event that promotes visibility and mainstream awareness of the positive pride felt by people with disabilities within their community.

In 2018, it runs from Monday 26 November to Monday 3 December.

Disabled people make up 25 percent (1.1 million) of the New Zealand population. “We are New Zealand’s largest minority group and it’s time to claim our place in society – one where we are included, visible and valued.”

Visit the Disability Pride Aotearoa website for a wide range of information and resources, and the Facebook page for updated information on events and more.
