The Passing of DREDF's Marilyn Golden

October 1, 2021

Marilyn Golden, senior policy analyst for the Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund (DREDF), died at home on September 21, 2021.

 A long-time disability rights advocate, she played a key role in the development, passage, and implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Her advocacy shaped accessibility in the United States and improved architectural access and standards worldwide. She spent more than three decades working to see that the ADA was implemented and enforced, and teaching others the value of disability civil rights via, and beyond the law.
