Disability Pride – An Oxymoron?-In-Person and Virtual Worship

Do you know that July is Disability Pride month? Are you puzzled by the juxtaposition of disability and pride? Together we’re going to explore the genesis of Disability Pride month and its goal of celebrating and reclaiming  the visibility of people with disabilities in public spaces. Are you familiar with the term “ableism”? We’ll examine it in light of the 8th Principle of Unitarian Universalism.  We’ll also hear directly from a member of TVUUC about her perspectives on life as a person with disabilities.
