Hi Everyone,

The Disability Pride Parade is here! It’s going to be a great time, and the art party at CASS on June 5th from 10am-1pm will be a great way to make art, be proud, and have fun.

Common, with a day of entertainment and fun until 2:00 pm

How much does it cost?

It is free! We will have music, snacks and a ton of fun!

Invite friends, family, colleagues and care workers! Make a banner! Bring a sign!
