Rogers sent the following statement to ABC15 in response to questions about her resignation:
My role in public relations was to get information out about the Americans with Disabilities Act, and help provide life-saving medical gifts to AID recipients. To date, I was able to deliver life-saving gifts to over 250 people. Over the last six months, AID received media coverage from all over the world, causing hundreds of thousands of people to talk about ADA for the first time in 26 years.
While the conversations, enforcement, and foundation giving are important, my personal ideals were not in alignment with the organization.
I cherish the families I have met through foundation giving, and they have inspired me more than they will ever know. I have seen discrimination, threats, and harm that comes from hate, and I have a true understanding of the difficulties fighting for accessibility for all.
