Understanding Disability Pride Month


Disability Pride Month originated in the United States to commemorate the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26, 1990. This landmark legislation prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities, ensuring equal opportunities in all areas of public life. Celebrating Disability Pride Month honors this important milestone and recognizes the contributions and achievements of people with disabilities.


Why Disability Awareness Matters


Raising awareness about disabilities is crucial in creating a more inclusive and accepting society. It helps dispel myths and stereotypes, encourages empathy and understanding, and fosters an environment where everyone feels valued and respected. By educating children about disabilities, we can nurture a generation that appreciates diversity and champions inclusivity.


Our Commitment at Purple Diamond Press


At Purple Diamond Press, we believe that children's books are powerful tools for teaching important life lessons. Our stories are crafted to inspire young readers to embrace differences, practice kindness, and build inclusive communities. Through relatable characters and engaging narratives, we aim to instill values of acceptance and empathy in children from an early age. Check out our books that embrace disability representation.
