Celebrate Ed Roberts Day

On January 23 and throughout the year, celebrate the life and legacy of Edward Verne "Ed" Roberts (January 23, 1939 - March 14,1995), a civil rights leader, activist and pioneer in disability rights. Ed Roberts was the first student with severe disabilities to attend the University of California, Berkeley (UC-B). Building on his experience in establishing access and supports as a student he went on to become the father of the Independent Living Movement. Ed Roberts was also a big proponent of mentoring young advocates and self-advocates.

On December 15, 2010, the United States House of Representatives declared January 23 as "Ed Roberts Day."
