Bob Perske

Bob was beloved in the in the disability community. He served as a Chaplin at an institution for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities(I/DD), became an Executive Director for a chapter of The Arc, and authored ground-breaking books on creating circles of support for people with disabilities, but the passion that he carried through the end of his life, was his advocacy to support and educate people with I/DD coerced into giving false confessions and facing the death penalty.
