Ed Roberts Testifying at Section 504 Hearings

...the more severely retarded people, joining us for the first time in this incredible struggle, is one that leads me to believe that we're going to win this.

And we're not going to stop until Title Four, which I believe is a basic civil rights platform, a platform that guarantees to each person with a disability in this country, that they are equal in the eyes of the law, and that they will have equal access to educational institutions, to hospitals, to the institutions in our society which serve us all.

It seems to me, that as director of the largest department of rehabilitation in this country, we are more than handicapped without these laws – we're crippled.
