Disability Pride Cincinnati

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), one of the most important and wide-reaching pieces of civil rights legislation in U.S. history. We planned to hold a celebration at Washington Park but decided an in-person gathering was not safe at this time.

Many of our events have moved online, and there are plenty of ways for you to participate in Cincinnati’s Disability Pride celebration!
