PEAC provides presentations at universities to future educators about inclusive practices. We also work with families who have a child with a disability to help them access the best and most inclusive educational experience possible. Additionally PEAC provides community events and trainings such as IEP Clinics and workshops like Understanding the IEP.
We will be painting the lighthouse above. It was selected as it resembles PEAC's lighthouse logo. It represents strength and a beacon of light, hope, and help to others especially when surrounded by choppy water and adversity.

Disability Pride Day, Philadelphia, June 22, 2013
The hundreds of people with disabilities and their families and friends who participated were unified with one message: “It’s OK to be who you are and Philadelphia should be proud of its citizens with disabilities”. The participants moved together from the Liberty Bell to Franklin Square Park for a day filled with art, exhibits, performances, and education for young and old.
“It’s important that people with disabilities are proud of who they are and events like Disability Pride Philadelphia give them a platform to share their pride with the public. It is also a chance for people with all different disabilities to get together and celebrate; this is an event for everyone, young old, disability, and no disability. This event is about getting people together.” Disability Pride organizer, Johnny Crescendo, said.
At Franklin Square Park participants were treated with 3 hours of music, mime, speeches from key politicians and live art. PEAC Parent Consultants, Self Advocate Leaders, staff, and children hosted a booth with our information and carnival games complete with a lollipop tree and bottles of bubbles for prizes. We look forward to next year.
