NCIL Members: Ask Your Local Governments to Sign a Proclamation Officially Recognizing National Disability Voter Registration Week

This year, National Disability Voter Registration Week will take place from July 11 to 15. In coordination with the American Association of People with Disabilities’ REV Up (Register, Educate, Vote and Use your Power) Campaign, NCIL challenges our members to contact your local governments to ask them to sign a proclamation officially recognizing National Disability Voter Registration Week. This action supports the growing involvement of the disability community in the political process and helps to build awareness about the political priorities and interests of Americans with disabilities. Urge your local government members to sign a proclamation in recognition of this important week! View the sample proclamation.
