"We are experiencing a global pandemic, overt acts of anti-blackness and racism, many cuts that affect people with disabilities like never before, increased housing insecurity and our country stands divided.
This video hosted by Uniting to End Violence Against People with Disabilities features Max Barrows, Renee Lopez, and Mel Phillips, as they discuss specific issues that impact people with disabilities related to voting. They highlight best practices and provides concrete options and resources to ensure that people with disabilities can vote.
Uniting to End Violence Against People with Disabilities is a national Coalition comprised of activists with disabilities as well as disability rights and anti-violence advocates. The work of this Coalition is funded by the NoVo Foundation and led through a partnership between the Vera Institute of Justice and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.
The work of Uniting to End Violence Against People with Disabilities centers the lived experiences of those most impacted and commits to ending violence against people with disabilities while dismantling racism and ableism.
The Black, Indigenous and People of Color from the Coalition invite you to take action and vote in the November 2020 election! Never in the history of voting has voting become so important to people with disabilities."
