Elected for Inclusion, Getting Involved Robin Troutman 16 Dec 2019 11:25 EST

Dear DD Councils,

The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD<https://www.aapd.com/>) and REV UP Texas<http://www.revuptexas.org/> will host Elected for Inclusion<https://www.aapd.com/advocacy/voting/2020-presidential-forum-on-disability-issues/>, a national nonpartisan Presidential candidate forum on disability issues. Elected for Inclusion will take place on January 13, 2020 at the AT&T Hotel and Convention Center in Austin, Texas. The forum will give major party Presidential candidates an opportunity to address questions and discuss policy decisions that affect approximately 23% of the American electorate.
As an organization that is deeply invested in advancing disability rights, I am writing today to see if your organization is interested in partnering with us on Elected for Inclusion. Below are a few ways to get involved with the forum and promoting disability rights in the upcoming elections.
