The 4th New Jersey Disability Pride Parade & Celebration (NJDPP) will be held on Friday, October 3rd, in downtown Trenton, NJ. We are expecting 700+ people and organizations representing a wide variety of disabilities to march and roll from the State House to the post-parade celebration at in downtown Trenton on East Lafayette Street, between South Broad Street and South Warren Street.
The purpose of the New Jersey Disability Pride Parade & Celebration is to bring people, organizations and businesses together to celebrate pride with the disability community and to promote the belief that disability is a natural and beautiful part of human diversity while generating national awareness for the disability community.
