ADVOCACY IN ACTION
Get Out the Vote!
Imagine how things would be different if every one of the 33.7 million Americans with disabilities voted in each election. What message would that send to our elected officials? Perhaps social services and community supports would be fully funded. Maybe affordable and accessible housing would top the list of legislative priorities. Could public transportation finally be recognized as essential to the transit system in our community?
The message we would send is that people with disabilities have power and our collective voice will be heard. The first act in fulfilling our civic duty is to vote. Know who is running, what they stand for, and how they will act on issues that affect your life. Make an informed decision and then cast your vote.
