The 3rd Annual New Jersey Disability Pride Parade & Celebration will be held on Friday, October 4, at 9:00 AM in downtown Trenton, NJ. We are expecting over 500 people and organizations representing a wide variety of disabilities to march and roll from the State House to the post-parade celebration on E Lafayette Street.
The purpose of the New Jersey Disability Pride Parade & Celebration is to bring people, organizations and businesses together to celebrate pride with the disability community and to promote the belief that disability is a natural and beautiful part of human diversity while generating national awareness for the disability community.
The New Jersey Disability Pride Parade & Celebration is a grass-roots effort organized and hosted by ACI with the support of the statewide disability community. Founded in 1986, ACI is a 501(c)(3) organization designated as a center for independent living in New Jersey. ACI’s goal is to promote choice, self-direction and independent living in the lives of people with disabilities, with the right of the individual to inclusion in the community.
