Neurodiversity Pride Day 2019
Information about the Neurodiversity Pride Day
The 18th of June 2019 will be the second Neurodiversity Pride Day, organized in the Netherlands by the Neurodiversity Foundation, for all neurodivergents, and their allies.
On this day, activities are organized in cities that support the wish for a neuroinclusive future for all. On this day, we shine a spotlight to the positive impact of a inclusive, neurodiverse friendly society, as well as the teaming up of individuals with differing neurotypes in the spirit of cooperation and solidarity. Its a day, to be proud, of your differences to the imaginary norms. A day, to be thankful of how being different, being neurodivergent, makes the world, a better place for all.
Last year was focussed on ‘Neurodiverse Families’, but this year we switch the theme to ‘Neurodiverse Friends’, for there is a lot of that going around in the world, and it deserves celebration. We all have friends who are wired differently, and these are persons who’ve earned our friendship and trust. All of us have Neurodifferent friends that we appreciate, that we like for who they are, that add something to our lives, whether we are Neurodivergent or Neurotypical ourselves. On this day, we will show that, in friendship, bridging the gaps between us, is not so hard. And its worth it.
There will be activities in the 4 main cities of the Netherlands, as well as an online campaign. The slogan for the 2019 edition is: You, Be You.
As an action, on this 2nd ever Neurodiversity Pride Day, we request from our friends, to mark this day in their calendar as Neurodiversity Pride Day, and use the Neurodiverse pride-emblem to show love, connection and support to all Neurodivergent people, by putting the emblem on their social-media profile pictures. The emblem has the ‘faded rainbow’ in it, which is the symbol for neurodiverse Pride, similar to the vividly colored rainbow being used a symbol for LTGB Pride. In this simple way, with this simple action, we create a wave of acceptance and appreciation, to be seen by all, as a message for a brighter future to come.
For Neurodiversity Pride day 2020, we are inviting organisations supportive of the day to join us in celebration, each June 18th. For information, mail to [email protected]
All activities are free, and welcome to all types and kinds of people, click the links for more information.
