About

Statement

The FDR Memorial Legacy Committee condemns the assault on our democracy last night.  As an organization borne out of protest – the disability community’s fight for representation at the FDR Memorial – what we saw last night at our nation’s Capitol was not a fight for representation.  It was an attack on our institutions.  The stark images will be seared in our collective memory. 

As an organization dedicated to education and awareness, we are further dedicated to ensuring the promotion of true American civic values, and what leadership looks like.

In the words of President Franklin D. Roosevelt: “Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely.  The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.”
