Grassroots Organizing

title-line

Grassroots organizing groups people with similar interests/situations and empowers individuals to fight against injustice. This type of mobilizing of forces can take many forms and be anything from organizing educational campaigns, petitions, turnouts at hearings, protests, and even civil disobedience. Grassroots organizing seeks to use the power of the group by tapping into the skills of each person to achieve a result that no individual could achieve acting alone. In grassroots organizing, there is a constant focus on leadership development that often bleeds into other areas of life. CCDC believes in the grassroots organizing process and always seeks to engage more people who are directly affected by the issues, build more leadership in our community, and to empower our community to solve our own problems.

Voting – Your Vote is Your Voice: Make Sure You’re Heard

There is nothing more powerful…or empowering…than your voice. It is your voice that will effect change. The right to vote is one place where your voice can be heard the loudest and have the most impact. We encourage every American to be informed, to take the time to learn about the issues that effect their lives, and to vote on the issues at every opportunity.

As a community, people with disabilities could be…and SHOULD be…a powerful voting block if we voted together. In 2012, more than 15 million people with disabilities voted. In 2012, 65.6% of people with disabilities in Colorado voted compared with 71.1% of people without disabilities. To learn more, visit this informative article on Disability and Voter Turnout
