New Zealanders with disabilities constantly have to fight to truly be included in society, and that’s not good enough. That’s the message organisers of this year’s Disability Pride Week want to get across.
This year’s theme is Setting the Agenda. The Pride Week organisers say too often disabled people are inaccurately portrayed by a media that has small, though slowly increasing, numbers of disabled journalists, so this year’s theme is about people with disabilities being the ones to decide how they want to be represented.
Disability Pride Week 2019 will run from Monday 16 September until Sunday 22 September, and there will be events taking place all over New Zealand. For more information, see Disability Pride Aotearoa’s website.
