The Special Olympics serves nearly 2 million athletes and their families in more than 150 countries. In addition to his leadership with the Special Olympics, Shriver has pursued initiatives in music, film, and television to highlight the abilities and issues of those with intellectual disabilities. In addition, he has worked to increase legislative attention and government support for issues of concern to the Special Olympics community, testifying in front of Congress every year since 2001.
Shriver chairs the Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and serves on the Board of the Education Commission of the States’ Compact for Learning and Citizenship, the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center at the University of North Carolina, and the American Association on Intellectual Disabilities.
