Video Link: “President John F. Kennedy’s 51st News Conference, March 6, 1963”

Video Link

This YouTube video was uploaded on May 18, 2009 by Helmer Reenberg the clip is about 10 minutes long and while most of the conference seems to be focused on the Cuban Crisis, Space race, funding for school lunches, and other hot topics it does mention Kennedy’s proposed bill for increasing funding for mental and intellectually disabled people in community based settings.

I found it to be interesting and sadly felt like I was watching something that could easily be heard in today’s news all you need to do is change the names of places and people involved.
