“Say it loud,
We’re disabled, and we’re proud.”
As marchers neared the balloons and white awnings outside the Silicon Valley Center for Independent Living on Saturday, shouts and cheers competed to be heard.

Hundreds of people marched in San Jose’s first ever West Coast Disability Pride Parade on North First Street, spreading out along a one-mile section of road closed to traffic. The event was to mark the 20th anniversary of the signing of the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act and to encourage the disabled to fight for the rights the law promised.
