Happy National Disability Voters Registration Week!
This week is all about preparing to have our voices heard in the upcoming elections. The REV UP campaign was started in 2016 by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). REV UP stands for Register! Educate! Vote! Use your Power!
It is important to voice your opinions and ideas that effect you. By voting, you are showing your representatives what matters to you in order for them to make the necessary changes. This week has events across the country including Tampa and Miami Florida, to excite the community on how much can be accomplished by standing together.
There is strength in numbers so we want to make the disability vote as strong as possible. The objective of this week is to increase political power of the disabled community. By spreading the importance of being registered to vote, assisting in registering, gaining attention from candidates, and educating the voter.
We will provide links on our social media for you to register to vote, update your information, or learn more about National Disability Voters Registration week.
