The Disability Vote Coalition Survival encourages you to educate candidates for office about policy issues that are important to people with disabilities. Survival Coalition of Wisconsin Disability Organizations has prepared these issue papers to provide background and a disability perspective for elected officials, candidates for office, and other policymakers and advocates.
Many people with disabilities access programs and services funded by federal, state, or local governments to support them in maintaining their health, accessing education and employment, voting, and participating in their communities. Policymakers make decisions on programs and services that are critical to the independence and the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health conditions, sensory disabilities, and aging adults.
