Today, it is just common sense for all.” WOODROW WILSON NATIONAL FELLOWSHIP FOUNDATION &

Advising high school students with disabilities

We do not extend help to children solely because of moral obligations.

It is also because we have faith in the future of our society, in its progress, its values, and its traditions, and we want our children to have every possible

opportunity to participate in

the society and contribute to it.

Marian Wright Edelman, Founder: Children’s Defense Fund
