PRIDE is currently the largest nonprofit employer of people with disabilities in the U.S., and Ziegler is passionate about PRIDE’s mission. He emphasizes how we often take for granted the dignity and self-esteem that comes with working. “Ten percent of people in this country are people with disabilities of working age,” he explains. “Of that group, 74 percent are unemployed. It’s the largest disenfranchised population in this country.” In addition to his work with PRIDE, Ziegler participates in numerous other community groups, including serving as a board member for the California Chamber of Commerce. “PRIDE is owned by the community,” Ziegler states. “It’s important for us to stay connected. Our successes are everybody’s success.”
