As one of the CIL's founders, Ed Roberts was a man who championed the rights of people with disabilities and has been one of the most impactful people in advancing civil rights. Ed's work has radiated beyond the California Bay Area to improve the lives of millions of people across the globe.
Each year, we honor individuals who carry the legacy of Ed Roberts in their work, activism, and contributions. The focus of this year's Ed Roberts Award Celebration is the intersection of disability and parenting. We are looking forward to bringing everyone together virtually to cherish and celebrate Ed's memory and the work that continues to create a more inclusive, accessible, and just world.
