Empowering the Disability Vote: Civic engagement for the disability community and their allies
Voting issues go far beyond wheelchair accessibility at polling places.

We’ll explore current challenges to voting. There are ways to deal with the barriers for people with disabilities – both legal and physical. Every citizen has the right to be heard. We will look at ways to help people of all abilities exercise their civil rights.

Barbara Beckert, Director of External Advocacy, Disability Rights Wisconsin

Denise Jess, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired

Scott Thompson, Staff Counsel, Law Forward
