Disability pride is about accepting and honoring each person’s uniqueness and seeing it as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity.
As we move on from Pride Month in June, we remain committed to celebrating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion here at the Co-op year-round. But one thing that too few people know is that July is Disability Pride Month. Thirty-three years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law. This is something that has always been near and dear to my heart. Our Co-op strives to be ADA-compliant in how we do business, and we’re open to any suggestions to improve the experience in our store.
The Co-op currently offers ample and convenient accessible parking in our front and side lots, as well as motorized carts for customer use. We make every effort to keep our aisles uncluttered and easy to navigate. We also have a robust online shopping option with curbside pick-up for our Members, making it simple to order groceries from home. Our store is staffed with friendly employees who are more than willing to help anyone with a disability.
It is our goal here at the Co-op to treat everyone in our diverse community with the dignity and equity that we all deserve. Please feel free to reach out to me directly with questions or concerns. Thank you all for your support of our Co-op’s Mission.
