What is REV UP?
REV UP stands for “Register, Educate, Vote, Use your Power!” The REV UP network is composed of grassroots coalitions and partner organizations that work to advance the Disability Vote. REV UP’s mission is to foster civic engagement and protect the voting rights of Americans with disabilities.
Join the REV UP Network!
REV UP is a growing national network and you can help build the disability vote by joining an existing local REV UP coalition, launching a coalition if you there isn’t one in your area, or joining the network as an individual or organizational partner. Learn more about these opportunities by signing up for our mailing list below and attending upcoming REV UP events. If you have questions about REV UP or want to find out if there is a REV UP disability vote coalition in your area, contact Lilian Aluri, the REV UP Voting Campaign Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
