Working for Independence, Equity, and Justice!
INDEx will be hosting a variety of events to celebrate Disability Pride week July 23-29th.
Start the week on July 23rd with a visit to Riverfront Park, 10am-4pm for a resource and activity fair. This free event will have fun and information for the whole family. You can find them at the Central Promenade.
Sunday will be the first ever Social Media Blast! Write a blog, a poem, make a drawing or a video, sing a song — whatever disability pride means to you. Post using the hash tags #DisabilityPride #NothingAboutUsWithoutUs.
Monday, July 25th you can join in person to the Sensory Tool Workshop. This will be on the 3rd floor of the Saranac Building at 6:00 pm. You can create your own toolbox of things to help calm you down when stress and anxiety are getting to be too much. Supplies will be provided.
Can’t join in person? They have some virtual events too. Join the discussion panel for Adult Voice on Disability Pride on Tuesday the 26th and the Youth Voice discussion panel on Thursday the 28th. Both start at 6:00 pm on zoom.
You can attend the training on Disability and Marriage Equality. Did you know the disability community STILL doesn’t have equal access to marriage? Many disabled individuals have to choose between marrying their loved ones or life saving medical benefits. Hear from those impacted and learn how we can join together to advocate for change. This will be held July 27th in person on the 3rd floor of the Saranac Building at 6:00 pm.
They will finish out the week by joining the Americans With Disabilities Act Celebration in McEuen Park in Coeur d’Alene from 10-2 on Friday, July 29th. Bring your furry friend for a free portrait!
All of these events are disability friendly. If you need special accommodation (ASL, etc) please contact the INDEx office at 509-606-INDx.
