About This Issue

A critical step to creating a powerful disability voting bloc is to generate a large database of voters with disabilities. In doing so, CDR will be able to coordinate “Get Out the Vote” efforts and keep registered voters updated on important voting information via email blasts (e-blasts) and social media channels (Facebook, Twitter).

Secondly, by developing a strong, solid network of organizations dedicated to bettering the lives of people everywhere, both with and without disabilities, we can reach out to voters with disabilities not already in the CDR network. In addition to that, organizations within the NYDVN network can engage in resources and information-sharing.

If you are a voter with a disability and would like to join the database, email me at jthurber@cdrnys.org. Please be sure to include “NYDVN Database” in the subject line. You will be added to a mailing list that will keep you updated on important voting information and efforts.

3. Volunteer.

Email me at jthurber@cdrnys.org to be added to the interested volunteers list. The NYDVN project is expected to officially launch in Fall 2013. Once everything is up and running, I will get in touch with you and let you know how you can contribute to the project.
