Disability Policy Seminar
Disability and Community Representation
Community includes all aspects of living, including the right to full participation in the political process. However, a recent study shows that people with disabilities are not being represented in elected offices. We will look at how people with disabilities who are interested in serving as elected officials or being appointed to serve in government can make that happen. We will also take a look at the importance of being counted in the 2020 Census to make sure our political voice is heard.
