July is Disability Pride Month, celebrated with awareness programming, parades, and more in cities across the United States. In 1990, then president George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law which prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in several areas including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications, and access to state and local government programs and services. The first celebration of Disability Pride was held in the same year in Boston, MA and has become an annual event. Benedictine University works hard to provide equitable education and services to our disabled community members, and provide programming that offers awareness of ableism and the challenges faced by many on a daily basis. It is important to recognize and address these challenges to provide a truly Benedictine environment for all.
