Get involved-We have ideas!
“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”– Audrey Hepburn
Despite our current situation, life has handed over an opportunity – more time. We still have the same 24-hours in the day, but we have more space in that time to try something new. You may already be exploring hobbies, books, music, or a myriad of other pursuits, therefore, we’d like to share some other possibilities with you. And the best part – you can do them from home.
Here are a few things you can try. Some may be a better fit than others for you. So, try something, and then try something else. If you have ideas to add, please send them to us at email@example.com.
Ways to Advocate:
Action Alerts: As we hear about actions, votes, and other movements regarding the policies which define our lives, we ask for people to take action. This could be calling or emailing your legislators, signing onto a petition, or forwarding critical information to others you know.
Be Counted: This year there are two ways to be involved in being counted – the 2020 Census and the Presidential & State Elections.
We need to ensure all of us are involved in the upcoming election. Our voices need to be heard and you can help through the neighborhood, family, and social organizing. Learn from and work with Dawn Howard from CCDC about using the app OutVote to marshal your neighborhood forces to rally the disability vote. This is just one way to regain some of the power that was lost to the virus.
