2020 Presidential Forum on Disability Issues
Greetings and Happy New Year,
Due to the timing of the January democratic presidential candidate debate, the impeachment proceedings in the Senate, and other factors beyond the control of the organizers, Elected for Inclusion: A Presidential Forum on Disability Issues has been postponed. It will be rescheduled, and we are working with our partners to determine a new date as soon as possible. Please download our full statement here.
The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and REV UP Texas are proud to announce Elected for Inclusion, our national nonpartisan Presidential forum on disability issues.
Elected for Inclusion – the Presidential Forum on Disabilities Issues will place the pressing questions the disability community faces on center stage and give major party Presidential candidates an opportunity to discuss policy decisions that affect approximately 23% of the American electorate.
AAPD and REV UP Texas are hosting Elected for Inclusion as a means of highlighting the power of the disability vote. In 2020, over 35 million eligible voters will be people with disabilities. The number of “disability voters” increases to over 62 million when we consider the ripple effect of the disability vote that connects families, friends, advocates, educators, providers, and other individuals that interact with people with disabilities.
