Letter from the Director Ask Emerson Best Buddies Spotlight e-Buddy of the Month Tech Corner

contentsJune 2004

Dear Friend,

Thomas Jefferson wrote,

“We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their creator
with certain inalienable rights.”

Working for Best Buddies means I have seen too many Americans who don’t believe that Mr. Jefferson meant to include people with intellectual disabilities in his sweeping declaration. That is why Best Buddies exists – to help provide more opportunity for those with disabilities.

July’s fireworks remind me that independence is always worth celebrating – and I celebrate the ongoing struggle to extend that freedom to those with intellectual disabilities.

Best,

Lisa Derx
Vice President, e-Buddies
