NJ Disability Pride Parade & Celebration
The 6th Annual New Jersey Disability Pride Parade & Celebration took place on Friday, October 7th, 2016 in downtown Trenton, NJ. Hundreds people and organizations representing a wide variety of disabilities marched and rolled from the NJ State House to the celebration site at South Broad and East 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 celebration portion of NJDPP features an awesome lineup of speakers, entertainers, singers, dancers, musicians and comedians! We also have activities for the kids, prizes, giveaways and more!
