Statement from President Clinton on the Passing of Marca Bristo
 

Marca Bristo was a courageous, visionary leader who dedicated more than 40 years of her life to breaking down barriers for people with disabilities.  From her pioneering advocacy with Access Living, to her role in drafting the Americans with Disabilities Act, to her outstanding service as Chair of the National Council on Disability during my Presidency, Marca helped give millions of Americans the opportunities to participate in all aspects of our nation’s life.  She touched hearts, opened minds, and changed America forever.  We should all give thanks for her life, service, and example.
