Your elected officials face very difficult choices everyday, and the decisions they make affect your life. On the issues that matter most to you, are you okay if those decisions are made without your input?
Now more than ever, it is important for people affected by disability to speak up. Did you know that people with disabilities vote at much lower rates than those without disabilities? Did you know that less than 1% of Americans take the time to contact their elected officials, even on the issues that matter to them most? Did you know that job approval ratings for elected officials are at all time lows? Now more than ever, it's important for Iowans with disabiliites to let their elected officials know what matters to them.
