Learning The Lessons of 2020: Voting, Accessibility, and Voters with Disabilities
Amid a global pandemic, fierce civil strife and a major economic crisis, millions of Americans safely and securely cast their ballots in 2020. More than in any previous election, the disability community was engaged, active, and made their voices heard. What lessons need to be learned from this election? How did expanded mail and absentee voting options help people with disabilities? What barriers still keep members of America’s largest minority community from casting their ballots? How did COVID-19 change the electoral landscape?

These are some of the critical questions answered by the groundbreaking work of Professors Lisa Schur and Douglas Kruse of the Rutgers Program for Disability Research. Professors Schur and Kruse will join RespectAbility for a special webinar reflecting on what their research shows and how future elections can be more inclusive. This webinar will reflect on research recently published by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and will identify key topics for future disability advocacy.
