I attended Berkeley because of their belief in giving equal rights to students no matter what their circumstance, and believe that we the school shouldn't renege on something that goes against what was once core to Berkeley's persona.

It is unconscionable that UC Berkeley would consider dismantling this essential resource to make education more accessible for people with disabilities. This ranks among the advances in social justice slated to be reversed and destroyed in these dark times.

Berkeley is known as a place that values accessibility and inclusion. This is a basic human right - not a political whim.

In a country where the rich get all the breaks, we who are disabled seem to get only crumbs. Stop cutting our already meager safety net!!!

Ed Roberts and the birth of the independent living movement at Berkeley are legends within our community. To eliminate the DSRP is a slap in face to Ed Roberts' legacy and the disabled students past and present who have thrived in the DSRP.

Even though I grew up across the country in Pennsylvania, for my whole life people have told me that Berkeley, CA - and UC Berkeley specifically - is "the Mecca of disability rights and accessibility." Why the school would want to throw away that legacy is beyond me and deeply concerning to the disabled population as a whole.

The Ed Roberts legacy matters. Disability rights are human rights.
