#CripTheVote: Democratic Debate Twitter Chat 2/11
The Disability Visibility Project and Disability Thinking will host their first Twitter chat this year following the 2016 Presidential Election. Please join us!
#CripTheVote: Our Voices, Our Vote
Americans with Disabilities and Political Participation
February 11, 2016
8 pm Eastern/ 5 pm Pacific
#CripTheVote is a nonpartisan campaign to engage both voters and politicians in a productive discussion about disability issues in the United States with the hope that disability takes on greater prominence within the American political landscape.
While #CripTheVote is a nonpartisan project, we understand that many people have already developed preferences for particular candidates. This is great–we only ask that everyone is respectful in their interactions with each other. Our primary focus here is on increasing engagement with disability issues as a part of American politics and on the need for that we are all in agreement!
Note: we will be hosting another Twitter chat on February 13, 2016 for the Republican Debate.
