Disability Pride Parade returns to Chicago

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago is making sure people living with disabilities do not live in fear. The city is hosting its 12th annual Disability Pride Parade on Saturday, July 18.

The parade begins at 11 a.m. at Van Buren and Dearborn before a rally at Daley Plaza. The parade celebrates all people with disabilities. This year's parade is also celebrating 25 years since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination against disabilities and ensures equal opportunities.

Before the parade, co-host Candace Coleman and coordinator Henry Malone talked with ABC7 about the importance of disability pride.
