Let’s talk about how to get people with disabilities energized to vote, and how to have an impact on elections! A year out from the next presidential election, how can we plan to organize our communities, educate people about voting, and increase voter turnout among people with disabilities? Join us to learn from experienced organizers in the disability community and from organizers in other movements!

Mark your calendars! The Organizer’s Forum has a call on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Eastern.

Background: The Organizing Workgroup of the National Disability Leadership Alliance hosts these calls the third Tuesday of every month as a resource for disability organizers, in an effort toward building the organizing capacity of the disability community across the country. They generally follow the format of a Welcome followed by 2-3 experts in a given area speaking for a few minutes on their experiences, advice and challenges. The calls include a 20-30 minute question and answer period.
