Marca Bristo, 1953 - 2019


“You need to surround yourself with people who have gifts you don’t have, and learn from them.”

Shortly before Marca Bristo’s death in September of 2019, the Ford Foundation sent a film crew to Access Living to capture Marca’s decades of experience and memories of the disability rights movement. This video tribute, shown at her memorial services in Washington, D.C. and Chicago, is a result of those interviews.
