Sarah Vote Nov 6 Blahovec @Sblahov
A1 Disabled folks are one in six voters, one in four American adults. We are usually called “the largest minority,” but this phrase ignores that marginalized groups are not discrete but intersecting. #MacroSW
Sarah Vote Nov 6 Blahovec @Sblahov
A1 cont’d: Every part of our lives are touched by policy. Education, employment, housing/transpo, healthcare, criminal justice reform, on and on. And this is especially true at the local levels, but voter turnout is lower in non-presidential years. #MacroSW
Sarah Vote Nov 6 Blahovec @Sblahov
A1 cont’d: It is imperative that disabled folks weigh in and be recognized as a voting bloc like other marginalized and underrepresented groups (that we may also be a part of). We need to build mainstream consciousness about our existence. #MacroSW
Sarah Vote Nov 6 Blahovec @Sblahov
A1 cont’d: people are starting to recognize that disabled people vote and care about what happens in government, but there are still ableist beliefs about whether we should participate. We need to shut those down. #MacroSW

Matthew L. Schwartz, MBA, LMSW ♿️ @TheMattSchwartz
A1 Because elections have *real* consequences on *real* lives, but on those who are marginalized the most. The Disability community is hugely impacted (in terms of services, rights, and access) based on the outcomes of elections, who's in office, and ballot measures #MacroSW
