Justin Dart Jr. and Max Starkloff head up a march through the streets of St. Louis. Justin Dart Jr. undertook a cross-country crusade to campaign for the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, stopping in many cities and marching with local activists. He revisited many of the same cities in 1995 to celebrate the success of the ADA, stopping in St. Louis.
