Join the FDR Memorial Legacy Committee in celebration of the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) Memorial.
FDR served as the 32nd President of the United States and served for an unprecedented 12 years in office. He is known for guiding the United States out of the Great Depression and through World War II. FDR contracted polio at age 39, which resulted in him being a wheelchair user for the remainder of his life. In addition to his presidential legacy, FDR was known for his efforts to support research in the treatment of polio, beginning the March for Dimes to fund a cure, and as a pioneer in rehabilitation practices.
The FDR Memorial Legacy Committee promotes education about the FDR Memorial for the public, works to improve inclusion and accessibility of the Memorial so all visitors can share in the experience, and is responsible for preserving the Memorial for future generations. Joyce Bender is proud to serve as an FDR Memorial Legacy Committee Advisor and will be participating in the May 11th Celebration.
