A disability pride celebration marking the 20th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 31, in Central Park.
It will begin with a parade around the park, starting and ending at the Rotary Stage, followed by speakers and performers at 9:30 a.m.
Organizers say they hope to “strengthen the pride, power and unity of people with disabilities, our families and allies” and “challenge the way many people think about and define ‘disability.’ ”
Davis High School and UC Davis graduate Sara Granda will serve as grand marshall for the parade. Paralyzed from the neck down after a car accident in 1997, she made headlines last year during her successful fight to take the bar exam. Granda has since been appointed special assistant to the chief counsel for the State Department of Health Care Services.
