Toronto Disability Pride March 2020

Join us for the Virtual Experience

Saturday, September 19, 2020


The Toronto Disability Pride March is back for 2020! We will be gathering virtually this year with speakers and artists.

Back in 2011, when we marched for the very first time, one of the main reasons we took to the street was because of police violence against disabled people in Toronto. It is painful to admit that while much has changed, this and many other forms of violence have not changed.

This is also why we must continue to be heard and gather in solidarity. Together we raise our voices not just for ourselves, but for the voices among us that have already silenced by oppression, and for the voices that keep us strong even when they are no longer with us.

This year 2020 is particularly hard for many of us. It has also shown us the strength of community and solidarity.We have chosen to keep the march virtual this year in an effort to be as equitable as possible, and out of respect for the communities we live in.

We’re still sorting out the details, but we have confirmed ASL this year.We look forward to seeing you virtually on Saturday September 19th at 1:00 PM.

Announcements

Some  things you should know if you plan to attend.

The Toronto Disability Pride March aims to promote a cross-disability atmosphere, that also recognizes other forms of oppression such as race, class, gender, sexuality, sanism, etc.  We believe the disability movement is strongest in a harmony of voices, not one homogeneous voice. We ask all those who plan to attend the march to respect this approach and the other people within the space of the march.

BE LOUD, BE PROUD, COME MARCH WITH US!

We would also like to invite people to bring their signs to the virtual march.
