NYSID Marches For Better Accessibility, Employment and Other Opportunities!


“Inclusion, awareness and visibility” took to sunny streets for the fifth annual NYC Disability Pride Parade down Broadway in midtown Manhattan on Sunday, July 14. No amount of warm temperatures dampened the colorful spirits of parade enthusiasts from NYSID Member Agencies, community support agencies for individuals and families, athletes with disabilities, disability advocates, NYC government agencies, and other supporters. 

NYSID was honored to help sponsor and support the biggest NYC Disability Pride Parade to date and join in with marchers from our Member Agencies AHRC New York City, AHRC Nassau, Fedcap, Goodwill Industries, Lifespire, Spectrum Designs, The Viscardi Center, and YAI.

During the post-parade celebration area, NYSID staff shared information about employment opportunities through our local Member Agencies with individuals and their family members, making some wonderful new connections along the way.

It was truly a pleasure to attend such an impactful community event. Please enjoy these moments from the fifth annual NYC Disability Pride Parade.
