Check out this article by Sarah Blahovec for more information: National Disability Voter Registration Week Is Coming. Here’s Why It Matters.

From July 11-15, tweet your story with:

“I #CripTheVote because_____________.”

Some things to consider when tweeting:

  • What does political/civic participation mean to you?
  • Why is it important that disabled people get involved politically?
  • What issues are you most concerned about this election?
  • What message do you want to send the candidates and other elected officials about the power of the disability vote?

Below are a few tweets from disabled people for a recent swag giveaway (now concluded) as a sample:

  1. This is a wonderful move to get the voices of disabled people into the political process – and to heighten everyone’s awareness about the challenges of living with a disability, whether it is a condition from birth, the result of a work injury, or a mental illness.

    But I do wonder at the timing. The primaries are over, and Bernie Sanders was clearly the best candidate for people with disabilities.
