The 8th Annual Toronto Disability Pride March
September 22 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Starting at Queens Park (111 Wellesley Street West) and marching to the School of Disability Studies at Ryerson (99 Gerrard Street East) from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Why We’re Marching
- To bring recognition of the struggles and value of people with disabilities as we fight against ableism, sanism and other forms of oppression.
- To be visible and show that we have a voice in our community and a right to be heard by taking to the streets.
- To celebrate and take pride in ourselves as a community of people with disabilities.
- BE LOUD, BE PROUD, COME MARCH WITH US!
WE HAVE A FUNDRAISING PAGE AND WE ALSO ACCEPT PAYPAL DONATIONS.
We need volunteers and marshals for the march! If you have experience that is great, if not we still want you!
Some things you should know if you plan to attend.
The Toronto Disability Pride March aims to promote a cross-disability atmosphere, that also recognizes other forms of oppression such as race, class, gender, sexuality, sanism, etc. We believe the disability movement is strongest in a harmony of voices, not one homogeneous voice. We ask all those who plan to attend the march to respect this approach and the other people within the space of the march.
We would also like to invite people to bring their own noisemakers to the march -maracas, tambourines, etc.
