We all want our voice to be heard.  We want our elected officials to hear our concerns and do something about them. I recently found a letter written to 2020 Presidential candidates on The Mighty and I want to share it to you here.  Everyone needs a voice. For voters with disabilities, getting their voice heard at the polling sites is dependent on accessibility and often, advocates.

Advocates

Advocates can also help to ensure that people with disabilities are not only seen, but heard. For the last 30 years, Freedom Resource Center has provided people with disabilities with the advocacy, information and support to live independently.  With no complicated application, our advocates are able to provide vital resources to people at no cost.  But we can’t do this alone. That’s where you come in.
