In honor of Ed Roberts, a Berkeley quadriplegic who began the disability rights movement 40 years ago, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill Monday creating Ed Roberts Day in California, encouraging schools and other institutions to educate the public about the disability-rights pioneer every year on his birthday, Jan. 23.
