Nothing About Us, Without Us: Partnership with Voting Rights Organizations at the State Level

Date: August 27, 2014

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET

P&As play a unique leadership role in the world of voting rights, with a specific expertise regarding access to electoral systems and the rights of voters with disabilities. Through partnership with other civil rights organizations focused on voting work in their states, the P&As can ensure that voting rights advocacy does not exclude the perspective of voters with disabilities while also opening up the P&A to an influx of resources and connections in the voting rights sphere. This phone conference will feature staff from three national civil rights organizations with a proven history of voting rights work through a network of state-based affiliates. Speakers will focus on voting rights work on the ground and opportunities for partnership with the P&A network at the state level, followed by a Q&A session.
