Today marks 32 years since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed to prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities. The disability spectrum is broader than you may think. While one person can have physical impairments, others may have visual or mental limitations.

To celebrate Disability Pride Month, ensure you’re including those who are different from you in every aspect of your life and continue to be an ally to those with disabilities.
