Power: The Disability Vote

 

 

The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is proud to announce POWER: the Disability Vote, a national, non-partisan Disability & Election Virtual Summit on Monday & Tuesday, June 22 and 23 from noon to 3:45 pm ET. Both days and will include panels, presentations, and a national call-to-action to mobilize disability voters and allies.

AAPD is hosting POWER: The Disability Vote as a means of highlighting the power of the disability vote. Disability groups across America are staring down the pandemic with a big question: given COVID-19’s impact on Americans with disabilities and growing numbers of voters who will acquire disabilities, will the Disability Vote be among the deciding factors in the 2020 Election?  

YES! 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.
