“To continue to build on the gains achieved because of the ADA will require renewed commitment as we face the challenges of the coming decade. Kessler Foundation will continue to be a force for good in the disability community, striving to fulfill the ADA’s promise of ‘a bright new era of equality, independence and freedom’." - Rodger DeRose
