Mad Pride in Chicago
THE 2004 FIRST ANNUAL DISABILITY PRIDE PARADE
Where human beings exist naturally there are people with disabilities. But unfortunately, the people with disabilities are the most marginalized segment of society. Weather it is a developed world or underdeveloped countries, the people with disabilities are the second-class citizens. The exclusion and marginalization of the people with disabilities are in every spere of social activities. Such as health care, education, transportation, information/communication, livelihood activities and so on. Therefore, ActionAid Nepal (AAN) has selected disability theme as its one of the working issues.
AAN strongly believes that the rights of the people with disabilities must be ensured to achieve dignified life. The disabled persons should be organized and campaign at different levels (local, national and international level) to claim their rights and opportunities. Any significant event happening in any part of the globe in favour of the people with disabilities is our common concern.
The news of THE 2004 FIRST ANNUAL DISABILITY PRIDE PARADE being celebrated in Chicago as great event of the people of disability has made us excited. Action Aid Nepal would like to express its soliradity to make the event as a big achievement of human rights and diversity for us all. We are hopeful that this celebrating will be the pride, power, and unity of people with disability in real sense.
Wishing our best
