If you are or know a person with a disability interested in running for office, please share this information about an organizers forum to provide information on running as an elected official with a disability!
Although one in six voters has a disability, we are underrepresented and under-recognized as political candidates and public servants. This call will talk about the importance of running for and serving in public office as a person with a disability, the challenges and opportunities that people with disabilities (especially those who are multi-marginalized) face in campaigns, and the work being done to increase resources to train disabled leaders to run for office.
