  • The odds were truly against Raymond Fletcher when he was born with Roberts Syndrome, a rare disorder that affects the growth and formation of legs and arms, among other things. Raymond has challenged these odds, by working, learning, and experiencing life at every opportunity. Born and raised in the industrial Midwest, Raymond is a graduate of Indiana University Northwest with a bachelor’s degree in political science. He has spent a combined eight years in the classroom, both in Nevada and Indiana, covering everything from Head Start to welding and automotive. Raymond has Roberts Syndrome, and is one of approximately one hundred fifty people in the world with this disability. He has run for public office, been a radio show host, is a representative member of his leadership class, board member of the transit authority, and chairman of the board of a cannabis non-profit organization. Throughout all this, Raymond has remained a consultant for the last twenty-five years focusing on disability issues, politics, and public transportation. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

    I had the pleasure of meeting this guy this week and boy is he an inspiration. And he has the most beautiful personality. A ton of fun. Thanks 🙏🏽 to Keolis Las Vegas he was our class speaker, enlightening us able bodied human beings on the challenges he has to face on a daily basis. I am proud that I will be in a position to serve and provide him and people like him an opportunity to get around in public like everyone else.
