Disability Rights Ohio attorney David Scott has been involved with the Sierra Club for decades, and on May 18 was elected President of the environmental group's Board of Directors.

He has concentrated mostly on accessibility and fair housing issues. “It’s also idealistic work, and it’s given me a feeling for how revolutionary the Americans with Disabilities Act was when it was adopted,” he said. “It’s generally making America a more accessible place, and that involves individuals with myriad different needs.”
