Make YOUR plan to vote at our plain language webinar series!

Voting is an important part of making our voices heard in decisions about who leads our communities. Who we vote for shows our government what plans or ideas we support – and it has the power to let you choose who you’re working with or against in the fight for better disability-related policies in your area. Recently, many state legislatures have passed bills that challenge our rights to reproductive care, and the rights of transgender people. These appalling state bills remind us how important it is to vote for who represents us at every level of government. 

ASAN is holding a webinar series to talk about why voting matters and how to combat voting barriers you might experience or see! It’s important to understand how to use your vote to make a difference for your community, so all webinars will be in plain language.

On Thursday, October 6th from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM ET, we will be holding “Why Vote?”

Hear from members of our policy team as they talk about:

  • The importance of voting—in the short and long term
  • Local elections
  • The impact of your vote

And so much more!

Join us for “Why Vote?”

On Thursday, October 20th from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM ET, we will be holding “Combating Voting Barriers for You and Your Community”

Hear from members of our policy team as they talk about:

  • Understanding your right to vote
  • Ways politicians try keep people from voting
  • Voting and guardianship

Both webinars are open to everyone, but we especially want to invite self-advocates and allies to attend! They will be around 60 minutes each and will also be streamed on YouTube. The webinars will be on Zoom and will have CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation). If you have any questions or would like to request any additional accommodations such as ASL interpretation, please email dstrauss@autisticadvocacy.org.
