5. Success Stories and Positive change

Rob Guttenberg /robjob2@verizon.net

In 1985 (?), I was contacted by Jim Dickson of the National Organization on Disability to perform at a protest rally against the FDR Memorial Commissions' decision to omit images of FDR in his wheelchair, I composed the song, 'FDR in a Wheelchair' that assisted with getting the momentum to encourage the U.S. Congress to come up with funding for a second statue that now displays FDR in his White House wheelchair. Music, disability and politics came together for good!

 

I would like to invite others to visit: you-tube: 'Living Every Day' to view my video on disability awareness.
