I’m so excited and proud regarding the recent selection of Stevie Wonder as a new UN Messenger of Peace. Wonder’s focus will be on promoting the rights, dignity and awareness of 650 million people worldwide with disabilities. This amazingly talented man, who happens to be blind, is a great choice, complete with celebrity that will bring much-needed and long overdue focus to this important human rights cause. 

For those of us who have worked so hard on behalf of this population, this is a ground-breaking moment and an event for us to celebrate.
