CAN YOU ASSIST THE DISABLED IN VOTING?
The disabled community is severely marginalized economically, socially and politically despite the Americans with Disabilities Act, and things like the Special Olympics. See the Voter Turnout Request from Disabled on the Move below - please assist as you can:
Westchester Disabled On The Move is working with other agencies on a campaign called Rev Up The Vote to increase voter turnout among Westchester residents with disabilities. The campaign includes a voter registration push and reminding people to vote.
We are looking for volunteers to help with both outreach opportunities. If anyone is interested please contact Laura Case at LauraC@WDOM.org or 914-968-4717 ext 104. Thank you
