Just a note that you can move the subtitles to a different part of your screen if they are blocking the ASL. Click on the captions and then move to where you prefer. You can also turn off the captions if you are not using them

Great comment from William Truelove: Please ask if your State has a "Special Needs Registry"! It's for medical concerns where people can know if specialized assistance is needed. If your State doesn't have a "Special Needs Registry" start asking for it!!!!!!!!!❤️

Great comment from Zachary: When you vote, you are voting for the people that representatives are choosing to carry out their policy vision. We need to not only encouarge candidates to talk about disability, but help candidates with disabilities win elections at all levels.

AAPD - can this forum (2 days) maybe form a coalition to discuss this issues and work with others to get the vote out, but see what others have done, are doing? I'd like to be part of that! adaptgazan@gmail.com (CONVO 229-262-3424)

many of us go back and forth on PFL and IFL. I have such tremendous respect for the history of PFL coming out of the self-advocacy movement, and the #DisCo is incredibly diverse in the language we use. in my community we use IFL

I can only think of one time I was in a coalition meeting and someone mentioned ableism before I did. It made me feel so incredibly welcome.

It's exhausting to be a self-narrating zoo exhibit (Jim Sinclair)

From Robin Orlowski: And I do agree whole heartedly with her other point that we should not have to be at an event (either in person/virtual) for candidates/officials ...etc) to pay attention to us and our issues respecfully. They need to be comfortable talking about disability issues and targeting voters with disabilities even if 'we' specifically are in the room/cannot attend.
