Ed Roberts, through his words, actions, and life, continues to demonstrate that the independence, freedom and equality of people with disabilities of every age, race and circumstance—indeed of all people—is interdependent on our vigilance and resilience in working together to achieve these aims. I hope and trust this is a day of celebration, renewal, and commitment.
Here are some websites honoring Ed’s leadership and life that you might want to visit, and encourage others to visit as well:
- Google Masthead Celebrating Ed Roberts Day
- Ed Roberts, the Disability Rights Movement and the ADA—The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD)
- Ed Roberts Day, January 23rd—Minnesota Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities
Thank you for your leadership in expanding the legacy that Ed Roberts and others have helped forge.
